I am a Counselor, Life Management and Relationship Coach as well as a Certified Sexologist in the Ft. Lauderdale, Florida area. I have been counseling individuals and couples for nearly 20 years. My work is primarily with adults and couples dealing with life and relationship issues, abuse/trauma, substance abuse, and sexual problems. I see clients in my office and have also been doing counseling via webcam for several years with great success. If you are reluctant to try it, but seeing me in my office is not practical, give it a try. We have all been confronted with issues that have altered our lives. I will openly discuss my feelings and how I use the the same skills I teach my clients. I hope that I can help others understand that they can grow and change as I have. My focus will be reaching more people in order to help them get more out of life and deal with issues more effectively. I have two websites: http://www.alttherapist.com and http://www.attherapist.org. You can also contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jay_Tow@yahoo.com
This is a relaunch of my Blog. I have put a great deal of thought into what I want to accomplish with my blogging. I am pretty much a novice when it comes to the whole social media thing. I am on a learning curve. I hope I can help others live a more productive and rewarding life. This is what has always motivated me professionally. That being said, we are most motivated by the things that benefit us. The question becomes: how will this blog benefit me?
People who read my blog will come to know me, my values, that I truly care about helping others, and that I use many of the coping tools I teach my clients. I will get the satisfaction of helping others deal with life in a more positive way. I can and will refer clients to my Blog and might even have new clients find me through this medium. This gives me a wider audience to get my message across. I do want this Blog to be interactive and I welcome and encourage questions. If I answer publicly, the identity of the people asking questions will be protected.
You will find that I am not long winded with my posts and will find most of them a quick read. I think this is the most helpful. I don’t know about others, but, I find it difficult to wade through long posts and tend to avoid them.
I think that pretty much sums it up. Now on to the posts. I will try to post something often.
