•Emotional Eating
This program is designed for people who are preoccupied with food, eating or body size and use food to soothe negative emotions. The goal is to find and treat underlying causes of emotional eating and to learn how to cultivate positive attributes to reach emotional balance. In order to achieve this, we explore different topics and, by using EFT, release emotional issues associated with those topics.

• Building Healthy Self-Esteem
This program teaches healthy self-esteem building techniques enabling people to lead more successful and fulfilling lives. It delves into the roots of self-esteem, self-confidence, self-worth, approaching perfection and self-love.

• Dealing with Pain and Reducing Stress
This program is designed for people struggling with chronic pain from many sources, including migraines, arthritis pain, fibromyalgia and cancer. It explores pain’s impact on one’s life, the emotional effects of chronic pain, the body-mind connection and improving quality of life.

Psychotherapy with Anne Schiff, MA, LCSW, ACSW

Individual, couples, family and group therapy, including but not limited to:

• Relationships
• Depression/Anxiety

• Stress management

I offer adult clients a positive nurturing psychotherapeutic experience. I specialize in individual treatment but will meet with couples or families when appropriate. My approach is eclectic— psychodynamic, supportive and insight-oriented, ever mindful of the mind/body intricacies.

I engage clients in a verbal exchange, where they are gently encouraged to give voice to their feelings. I help them understand the underlying causes, the reasons for their responses, and offer various ways to alleviate their emotional distress in a safe, non-threatening environment. This approach can be very effective in treating issues of unrelenting sadness, anxiety, grief, guilt, anger, indecision, low self-esteem, and feelings of loss of control.
