This approach focuses on identifying solutions to present problems by helping you live consistent with your values, even while experiencing difficult thoughts, feelings and memories. Dr. Mecozzi’s philosophy is that it is our struggle to get rid of our anxiety and depression that actually worsens our anxiety and depression. Dr. Mecozzi will teach you how to develop a new relationship with your anxiety and depression, so you can experience more hope, contentment and fulfillment in your life.
