SERVICE: Relapse Prevention for an Anxiety Condition
PURPOSE: Support & education for relapse prevention, post-treatment.
PROVIDER: Kama Jensen, LPCC

Working with anxiety concerns has been my life’s work! I’ve added a post-treatment program to support relapse prevention. You did the work- now let’s maintain it! The post-treatment program is kinda like wearing a retainer after having braces removed. If there is a longstanding history of anxiety-based thinking, it can slip back in from time to time.

Together, we connect by phone or on CLCEC’s online clinic to practice core anxiety skills. This is a highly engaged meeting.

The service is available to clients who:

  • Benefit from an accountability partner to practice skills on an ongoing basis
  • Benefit from check-in’s to prevent relapse
  • Have been recently released from partial care at Sanford or another community program
HOW DOES IT WORK?

We practice mastery with the 5 cores skills to manage anxiety symptoms.

OPTIONS & COST:
  • Booster appointments are scheduled in increments, by phone or using our online clinic:

15 minutes/$30.00 or 30 minutes/$60.00

  • Text Option. Monthly fee of $50.00 for texting exposure practices.

 


JUST WANT TO TALK, NOT SCHEDULE A SESSION?

You can schedule in advance or request a visit the day of service, provider’s schedule allowing. Payments are collected the day of service by credit card or self-pay.

Same-day scheduling is helpful for conditions like OCD, health anxiety (hypochondria), and panic- all conditions in which severity can increase after a long period of being lowt

I enjoy working with individuals and couples face-to-face, and on the tele-visit platform.

ADHD Coaching

How to Start?

Call or email Kama. She is currently accepting new patients in the ADHD cognitive training program.

SERVICE: Executive Function Training for adults living with ADHD.
PURPOSE: Improve executive function skills to decrease ADHD-related struggles.
PROVIDER: Kama Jensen, LPCC

 

WHAT’S EXECUTIVE FUNCTION TRAINING?

Executive function, an important aspect of cognitive health, is measured by a person’s ability to make a plan, follow a plan and complete the plan. In a sense, it is maintaining self-directed attention.

Many advanced cognitive skills are required in the process of learning from the past and thinking ahead of the present moment. These skills are referred to as executive function skills or self-regulation skills. Executive function skills can be learned and strengthened!

WHO CAN BENEFIT?

Well, just about everyone since improving executive function skills strengthens and protects your cognitive health. The program is highly effective for adults living with ADHD, people raised in homes without structure, and adults who struggle with low activation/engagement. 

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Executive function training (often referred to as ADHD coaching or cognitive rehab) is an online service. We schedule visits using the tele-visit, online platform. During each visit, we define and reach a goal (or work toward a goal). The fee is $130.00 for a 45-50 minutes session.

A Few Examples of Key Focus Areas
A person’s executive function abilities are measured by the strength in these areas:

 

Self-Awareness: A person’s ability to accurately see his or her behavior, motives, name emotions and maintain self-directed attention.

Example of typical goals:

  • “I want to stay on an exercise plan.”

  • “I want to live life focused on my priorities and not get pulled off course”

 

 Other-Awareness: Often referred to as “social awareness” is a person’s ability to accurately identify the behavior, motives, and emotions of others.

Example of a typical goal:

  • “I want to learn how to return calls and texts. I’m always losing relationships.”

 

Inhibition: Often referred to as “self-restraint” or “self-control.” To inhibit is the ability to stop an action in order to fully process information necessary to make a wise decision.

Example of a typical goal:

  • “I want listen and be more present during conversations.”

 

Non-Verbal Working Memory: The ability to hold things in your mind and create mental images.

Example of a typical goal:

  • “I want to support my memory.”

 

Verbal Working Memory: This is self-speech which may occur both internally or externally. It is your brain talking to your brain. Inner verbal self-speech is the number #1 factor that influences your behavior.

Example of a typical goal:

  • “I want to learn how to make better decisions. I get so overwhlemed by day to day life.”

 

Emotional Self-Regulation: Emotion regulation is dependent on other EF skills functioning well. Emotion regulation is your ability to manage cognitions, emotions and your body’s physical sensations.

Example of a typical goal:

  • “I want to keep my cool and not be so impulsive.”

 

Internal-Motivation: How well you can motivate yourself to complete a task when there is no immediate external reward or consequence.

Example of a typical goal:

  • “I want to reach goals more consistently.”

 

Planning Ahead: How well you can stay aware of your values and priorities and not become easily distracted by momentary desires which will block you from reaching your goals.

Example of a typical goal:

  • “I want to procrastinate less.”

 

Active Problem Solving: This skill requires the mind to be realistic, creative and flexible. Like other EF skills, it can improve with practice. You must be able to see true options (what exists) and eliminate magical thinking (currently doesn’t exist). With true options, you mix and match to create options for moving forward based on your desired outcome.

Example of a typical goal:

  • “I want to make decisions more quickly and be more confident in my decisions.”

 

Time Awareness: How much wisdom you have about time (example: how long does a task take to complete?) and the energy it takes to complete a task in a certain time frame (doing too little will make the body sluggish and doing too much will fatigue the body). Time awareness is required for time and energy management. People who demonstrate poor time awareness usually struggle with time and energy management. They often do not understand why a planner is helpful and struggle to use it effectively.

Example of a typical goal:

  • “I want to be on time- when I want to be on time.”
