TODD OWEN, Ph.D.
Licensed Professional Counselor
222 Milwaukee St., Suite 104
As a Cognitive-Behavioral
Therapist my approach assumes that solutions to problems are inherently available
to us. I view people
as dynamic and whole individuals who may need counseling
as a tool for growth, or to work out areas where they may feel
"stuck." My clients have commented that I provide consistent statements
of empowerment and insight that can get things moving along in the right direction.
Changing our thoughts and behaviors can change our feelings and life's circumstances.
When I work with people, one of my goals is to help them identify the underlying thinking that is associated with
undesirable feelings, actions and behaviors. One potential benefit of cognitive therapy is the ability to detect, challenge,
and change those beliefs and attitudes that create, maintain and worsen feelings such as depression, anxiety, fear, panic,
anger, etc. Cognitive therapy can also help us gain new understanding about our problems and learn new ways of coping
and solving problems. With new skills, people often report a significant reduction in their feelings of distress, improved
general functioning, and improved relationships. Overcoming problems and building emotional muscle takes hard work.
I believe in a team approach to change, and as a member of the team, I
will work diligently to provide my professional skills, knowledge and services. I will regularly
review with you your goals and progress, and want you to be open and honest in providing input,
feedback and suggestions. If you have any questions or you are ready to set an initial
appointment please feel free to
call, text or email me.
