Are You Ready to Experience True Change? 

Deciding to seek counseling can be an emotional experience. For many people it has taken them years to come to the decision to seek outside help. Even more difficulty is the search to find the right counselor. Finding someone that can relate to your situation and has the skill to guide you through is very important. The most wonderful experience is when the counselor and client truly have a great fit. It is at that point that counseling can really make a difference. Counseling can assist with rejuvenating a broken relationship, fighting off depression, or coping with anxiety. At RCS our mission is to help you finally achieve the change you desire.

Message from Chief Executive Officer

As a therapist, and business owner, I am truly passionate about making a difference in the lives of others. My passion stems from seeing firsthand the amazing benefit of therapy. Many individuals find that after seeking advice from family, and friends they are still lost and lack direction. The reality is when anyone is in the middle of a storm, seeing the road ahead is impossible. Obtaining guidance from a counselor can bring clarity and peace of mind.

One of my specialty areas and research interest is building self-esteem and confidence in my clients. Having a healthy self-worth is a core component of living a happy life. Regardless of the circumstance, poor self-esteem has a devastating effect on the decisions that we make in our relationships, friendships, jobs and individual lives.

It is time to embrace your value and reach your true potential!

Warmly,

Dr. Kirleen R. Neely
Chief Executive Officer

Dr.  Neely is Excited to Announce the Release of Her First Children’s Book Titled

STRAIGHT TALK!

St-new-coverBook Description: Straight Talk is geared towards  children in the 8-13 year age group. The book is intended to spur mothers and daughters to have straightforward conversations on the tough topic of self-acceptance. Mothers routinely tell their girls they should love themselves, but often don’t have the words to explain the history behind the message.  The book is based on Dr. Neely’s research on dominate beauty standards and hair loss for young women of color.

Story Description: Sisters Morgan and Maddie give their mother nothing but trouble when it comes to combing their hair. They try many tricks to get out of the process and, more important, are convinced that getting a hair relaxer will be the answer to all their troubles. Their mother does not know that some family friends have made the girls feel that they have BAD, ugly hair. The story unfolds as their mother makes this discovery and has a straight forward conversation with the girls about the history of hair shaming, self acceptance, and the importance of embracing your unique qualities.

       Tip of the Month for January 2015

How to Break Free from Negative Thoughts

Have you ever wanted to know what tools therapist use to assist their clients with breaking negative patterns.? One tool that many therapist use is a distorted thinking check list. The list identifies thought patterns that keep you stagnant in relationships, career, and life. The list is used as a checks and balance against thoughts that you are having in your head. For example, say you are convinced that your boss does not like you and this thought is leading you to have anxiety about work. You would check your thoughts against the distorted thinking list. If you are able to see where you may be using one or two of the thinking errors, it’s very possible that your negative thoughts are distorting the truth. Try using the list during the next month and tell me how it works.

Distorted Thinking List:

  • All-Or-Nothing Thinking (You see things in black-and-white categories).
  • Overgeneralization (You see a single negative event as a never-ending pattern of defeat instead of just a single event).
  • Mental Filter (You pick out a single negative defeat and dwell on it exclusively so that your vision of reality becomes darkened).
  • Disqualifying the Positive (You dismiss positive experiences by insisting they “do not count”)
  • Jumping to Conclusions (You make a negative interpretation even though there are no definite facts that support your conclusion.)
  • Mind Reading (You arbitrarily conclude that someone is reacting negatively to you and do not follow-up.)
  • Personalization (You see yourself as the cause of a negative external event when you were not primarily responsible.)
