Michael Joseph, MSW
As a therapist I believe that self-awareness about one’s personal history, beliefs, attitudes and perceptions are often
an important first step to understanding “why do I feel/respond the way I do?” Still, your current life circumstances
will always stay well within my focus. My work will always lend itself to answering the important questions:
“What are my choices now?”; “Are there ways of engaging my life circumstance and the people in my life
differently?”; and “How can I get myself to change that which is in my control to change?”
You can expect to:
*Talk about your distress without shame or fear of judgment.
*Learn the bio/physiological underpinnings of fear, anxiety, and depression.
*Learn how your own emotional responses can work for and against you.
*Identify your unconscious beliefs and learn how they influence how you perceive your world, your
relationships, and the choices you make.
*Learn to distinguish your wants, needs, priorities and values from those of others around you.
*Learn how to calm your anxious arousal and replace it with an attitude of curiosity and experimentation.
*Learn to choose with confidence and self-awareness in face of incomplete information and unknowable
