Make the Changes You've Been Promising Yourself

Dr. Flowers offers personal consultations on various aspects of emotional competence for both small groups and individuals. Dr. Flowers' consultations are usually face-to-face sessions in which she focuses her attention on the client's issues, listening carefully to the details to analyze the dynamics of the issues. She and the client then, work through the issues collaboratively, to develop pragmatic management strategies or resolutions.

Her personal consultations have helped clients address issues such as conflict resolution or rapprochement in a family, uncertainty about a career move or parenting situation, finding a life balance, and seeking a second opinion or evaluation about the appropriateness of psychotherapy.

Dr. Flowers’ Approach

Dr. Flowers uses a practical, client-centered approach to make the consultation process clear and engaging. She assesses the issues involved and in everyday language, systematically discusses with clients various approaches they might take for resolution. Dr. Flowers helps design the final strategies to make the most of the individual personality and strengths of each client.

She also uses these specific situations to assist clients to anticipate the future management of their personal development. By increasing their overall understanding of how the feeling, thinking and action steps work together to resolve the current situation, clients develop the tools to resolve similar situations that may arise in their lives.

Dr. Flowers sometimes uses dreams to expedite the consultation process and the client’s personal development. (Find out more here.)

Consultation Clients

Dr. Flowers' personal consultation clients include individuals and families seeking help to change a situation in their personal or work lives, or seeking guidance with their current approach to change.

"It gave me a chance to analyze why I do certain things—why I am not getting the results I am seeking. Very beneficial!"
