Urban offers individual, couples and family counseling. Depending
upon your goals, she will help
you determine which therapy is best suited to your needs. Dr. Urban
offers help for:
and Panic Disorders:
We live in a very complex and competitive
society, stress is unavoidable what is avoidable is turning stress
into an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are serious and without
appropriate therapy they get worse not better overtime. For everyday
stress I do relaxation training and cognitive restructuring but
for anxiety disorders more intense therapy is required to teach
the patient appropriated coping skills, assertiveness, conflict
resolution and boundary setting. Anxiety disorders is one of my
specialties and I have helped 100s of people liberate themselves
and Mood Disorders:
Depression is the most common problem
of our times and society, yet there is a lot of stigma associated
with it. I remove the stigma and guide patients to come to terms
with their loses and disappointments, recognize the things they
can change and remove the obstacles standing in the path of their
successful recovery. I work closely with MDs and psychiatrist in
the area to coordinate treatments if medications is required.
Abuse and Trauma Recovery:
Dr. Urban is
known for her compassionate and highly effective work with individuals of all
Disorders and body-image issues:
Eating disorders are approaching
endemic proportions hitting our youngsters the hardest. Loss of
control, social isolation, shame, anger, family tension and/or dissolution
is what characterizes eating disorders. I help patients develop
a healthier relationship with food, handle interpersonal conflict
effectively, develop a healthy body image. I work closely with doctors,
family and nutrition experts.
in relationships and intimacy concerns:
All relationships have ups and downs.
When relationship survived adversity they grow stronger and more
intimate. Unfortunately when partners get caught in a web of strong
emotions they lose touch with objectivity and empathy and stop listening
to each other. I help partners listen to each other more openly
and more empathically. I help them recognize the patterns that each
repeats in the relationship and take ownership of the changes that
they both have to make. I have come to recognize that the old saying
love conquers all is not quite correct. Love is important,
but learning to communicate effectively, realistic expectations,
and flexibility are the foundations of every successful relationship.
Loss comes in different forms not
just through death. Major changes and phases in life frequently
involve loss, sacrifice and separation. I help people manage all
these feelings and put each experience of loss in perspective so
they can regain their strength and hope. I see loss and change as
inevitable parts of life and opportunities for growth.
Providing compassionate care to help
alleviate tension on a daily basis.
Honoring your strength and unique
gifts is a process of loving one's self.
