Lisa Bradford, LCSW, Bountiful, Utah

Lisa Bradford, LCSW, at Resilient Solutions, Inc, specializes in women's issues including:  depression, anxiety, divorce adjustment and sexual trauma such as sexual abuse and rape.  She also works with adolescent issues and eating disorders.  Lisa has developed a 24-week program, RISE (Resilient Individual's Succeeding through Emotional Trauma), which focuses on helping women heal from the emotional trauma of sexual abuse.  Lisa's focus is to help women and adolescents become resilient in their lives and understand their own personal value.  She has been a therapist for 18 years.  

Lisa shares:  One of the things that I love about being a therapist is that I get to help individuals heal.  I am often amazed by individuals resilience and ability to work through and overcome trauma.  I believe that talking about feelings is so powerful.  Often times shame is part of the core of the problems that people deal with.  In Brene's Brown's book "Daring Greatly" she talks about shame and the impact shame has on people.  She states the following:  "Shame derives it's power from being unspeakable.  That's why it loves perfectionists - it's so easy to keep us quiet.  If we cultivate enough awareness about shame to name it and speak to it, we've basically cut it off at the knees.  Shame hages having words wrapped around it.  If we speak shame, it begins to wither."  I love this statement because to me it speaks of hope and a way to heal.

Your Choice

 Every day we have plenty of opportunities to get angry, stressed or offended. But what you're doing when you indulge these negative emotions is giving something outside yourself power over your happiness. You can choose to not let little things upset you.
