As a clinical psychologist, my mission is to help people realize the kind of life satisfaction and inherent lovability that’s dependent on no one but themselves to sustain it. I know this is possible because it’s a theory that I have researched and developed from cognitive-behavior therapy and refined over my 20 years of successful interaction with clients. I have created a blueprint that sees them self-reliant and effective in every area of their lives. My patients have learned to channel their strengths, not their weaknesses, they no longer look for outside approval — instead, they have an active reinforcement that comes from within!

These six core techniques assist individuals in believing in their personal effectiveness in the world, as well as giving them a sense of personal control of outcomes to the best of their ability.

1. STARTING IS EASY, CLOSING IS HARD: Learning the importance of closing tasks-not just starting. It’s imperative not just to start, but to also finish and close.

2. DECISION-MAKING: Feeling confident in decision-making, without fearing mistakes or ramifications improves self-confidence and in turn improves chances for “closing.”

3. FACING FEARS: Do not be afraid to be afraid. Use your fear as positive motivation to propel and compel you to move forward.

4. REDUCE PEOPLE-PLEASING BEHAVIORS: Avoid situations of co-dependency and enmeshment. Learn to live an authentic life without living in “service” of others. Watch people-pleasing behaviors which secure feelings of indispensability while averting fears of abandonment.

5. AVOIDING ASSUMPTIONS: Avoid making assumptions about what other people think or feel about you. Your actions should be based on fact and not assumptions. Making decisions about how to proceed in a given situation based on guessing instead of facts is a dangerous exercise.

6. ACTIVE SELF-REINFORCEMENT: Providing tangible self-reinforcement for “closing” or a job well done. Make a cognitive shift from aspiring and needing reinforcement and praise from others to be willing to accept self-praise.
