“My life has changed drastically since I’ve started seeing Dr. Schanz, but in the best way possible! I’m a much stronger and happier woman now than I was when I first came in to see her.” — Sarah Bartel
What is professional counseling?
Professional Counseling is designed to diagnose and treat mental illnesses, such as:
- Major Depression
- General Anxiety Disorder
- Social Anxiety Disorder
- Bi-Polar Disorder
- Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
Health insurance usually covers professional counseling.
Professional Counselors are licensed by their state to provide diagnostic and treatment services to citizens of that state. They may not practice outside their state of licensure.
Dr. Anne is licensed in Texas and may only offer diagnostic and treatment services in Texas.
Fear is the source of all behavioral and emotional problems
Professional counseling with Dr. Anne is always aimed at building unconditional self-acceptance by eliminating fear (aka anxiety).
Fear is the source of all behavioral and emotional problems.
The antidote to fear is self-acceptance (love) and faith in your ability to adapt to whatever comes.
You have a 100% track record adapting to all the challenges in your life
Adapting is your superpower!
Learning to have faith in your ability to adapt will be your salvation from fear.
No matter what horrible thing may happen, you’ll figure out how to make it okay.
You always do…
You always will…
You have to. There is no choice.
The Clarity Key Model© is a framework of the mind, useful in identifying hidden fears generating behaviors and emotions that undermine achieving your goals.
As long as such fears remain hidden, they hijack your current efforts to make changes in your life, leaving you confused, frustrated, and self or other blaming.
Do not be discouraged. You can learn how to eliminate these fears and move forward with confidence and courage.
