What are the benefits of working with Sloan versus another therapist, coach, healer, or helping professional?
A good therapist does her own work. I know that the healing modalities I offer are effective because I have personally experienced the benefits of all of them. As a good therapist I have a wide range of tools to work with. I know my limits and I refer out when necessary.
What does Sloan offer that is unique and different?
I offer state of the art treatment modalities, including the LENS neurofeedback, EMDR, and DNMS.
What do clients value about Sloan as a person and as a professional?
My clients value my professionalism and integrity. I treat people how I would like to be treated. They value my commitment to my profession, and to their well being. I have high professional standards. I am constantly upgrading my skills and knowledge base. My goal is to put myself out of a job. I do not encourage my clients to become dependent upon me. I help my clients find their own inner resources, so that my help is less needed over time.
What successes has Sloan had and why?
I am happy to report that generally my clients feel better and function better after working with me. They benefit from the skills and knowledge they learn in therapy. Many are so happy with what they learn and experience that they refer me to their friends and family members.
What can clients anticipate or expect from their work with Sloan?
Clients can expect to learn about themselves: why they react the way they do; why they keep experiencing the same, or similar problems, over and over again; why they struggle with addictions, depression, or anxiety. My clients can expect to have more clarity, hope, and emotional balance.
