Professional statement

Jeffrey Aviles is a licensed clinical social worker. His primary focus is helping people people overcome Anxiety, ADHD and PTSD. He uses traditional methods methods like cognitive behavioral therapy as well as alternative form of treatments like hypnotherapy. He's been rated the top hypnotherapist in Maryland for several years.

Before this bio continues I want to take a break to help you understand the method at which he addresses the 3 disorders.

Let's first discuss how he can help you with anxiety. Most providers seek to help you manage your anxiety by distracting you from it. They'll encourage medication mediation and breathing techniques to help you address your anxious mood. And while these do seem effective they are just bandaid solutions. The real cure to this problem lies in tackling two problems. The first is understanding how you are creating the anxiety. The second is in helping you procress the anxiety. After all anxiety isike the check engine light in your car if you ignore it for to long it's bond to break down. The same goes true for your anxiety. If you ignore it for to long it's just gonna get worst and break you down. Now cause I'm a little short on time let me address the other two problems and how Jeff treats them.

With PTSD the treatment he uses is to neutralize the emotion and image of the event. He then uses a concept called post traumatic growth which helps the person feel differently about what occured. With ADHD he helps them learn techniques to increase focus and concentration all while helping them become more productive. It's a few more things he those with ADHD but in order to learn what they are you like have to speak to him.


Message to clients

Hey so I'ma rub people the wrong way with the next statement so I'm preference and say it comes from a good place. With that said I'm hands down one of the best therapists you will find.

When it comes to the most important tangibles of a successful therpaist I shine brighter then the north star. Let's take for instance rapport being the fact that I had a horrible stuttering problem for most of my life i became extremely empathic to others and was able to relate to people's pain.

I also became a good listener as a result of it. The next criteria is motivation and I got tons of it first hand from my boxing coach who instilled in me how important it is to have a solid mindset and great self talk.

Plus I honed those skills by inspiring my 3 younger brothers and younger cousins and their friends to not join gangs or do drugs. Ohh wait I almost forgot I was the growth coach for a big real estate group. So that box is checked.

The next category is do I know my stuff. And the answer is yes. I'm obsessed with making sure I'm one of the best so I'm constantly reading and learning how the mind works. I would say on a good week I spend about 10 hours on self study. Not to mention I've love helping people transform which makes working with me fun and easy.
