My Approach to Helping

Do you juggle intense bursts of creativity or productivity with periods of feeling stuck, and find that even small tasks can feel like climbing a mountain? Are you feeling overwhelmed, critical of yourself, procrastinating, or struggling with sleep? Maybe your desk is a mix of half-finished projects and coffee cups, and despite your achievements, you still feel scattered and stressed. You want to feel organized, focused, and at peace, able to manage your responsibilities without feeling overwhelmed.

I specialize in helping professionals & college students with ADHD & related challenges. Using CBT and Jungian approaches, I assist in regulating emotions, improving relationships, & enhancing productivity. CBT offers practical strategies for immediate concerns, while the Jungian approach for those who want deeper self-understanding and long-term growth.

Carl Jung said, "Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes." Understanding and managing challenges is important for change and growth. If you're ready to take the first steps on your path, I'm here to help. Don't procrastinate—take action and contact me today to schedule a free video consultation.

More Info About My Practice

Jason Hawkins, D.O., a board-certified family medicine physician and I founded Azoth Allspiritus to bridge the often-overlooked connection between body and mind in healthcare. We are a practice based in Farmington Hills, Michigan focused on guiding you to transform your health – inside and out.

At Azoth Allspiritus, ‘holistic’ means more than just addressing multiple symptoms; it’s about understanding and treating you as a complete person. This involves considering your physical symptoms, emotional well-being, mental health, social environment, and lifestyle factors. Our holistic approach encompasses a wide range of therapeutic modalities and lifestyle assessments to ensure that every aspect of your well-being is considered and cared for.

The term ‘Azoth’ symbolizes metamorphosis, reflecting our commitment to transformative care that addresses both mental and physical well-being. Insights from science about the brain’s capacity for change and connection are at the core of our approach, embodying the holistic spirit of Allspiritus — the unified potential within our consciousness. We understand that each person’s journey is distinct. We create a tailored approach that aligns with your individual needs, promoting balance and harmony across all aspects of your life. We empower you with the tools and support necessary for a comprehensive health transformation.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

As people settle into adulthood, many believe that their abilities are set in stone. Neuroplasticity challenges this idea - our brains can change and adapt at any age. Just as highways are a way for cars to travel long distances more quickly, pathways in the brain allow signals to move from one part to another more quickly. These networks of linked neurons (brain cells) are built through learning and experience. When we learn something new or practice a skill, our brain builds stronger connections within these pathways, which can help to speed up the signals. By reinforcing these neural pathways by repeatedly using them (through practice), the skill or knowledge becomes easier to access. If you don?t use one of these pathways, it can weaken or disappear. This is often expressed as the phrase "use it or lose it"? The adaptability of our neural networks shows our ability to learn throughout life, to acquire new habits or drop old ones, to recover from brain disease or injury and to adapt to new environmental and circumstantial demands.

Dr. Carol S. Dweck coined the term growth mindset, which fits well with neuroplasticity. A growth mindset sees challenges as chances to learn, whereas a fixed mindset views them as obstacles that can never be overcome. Failure is not considered a defeat but a necessary part of progress. This concept can be applied to several areas of life, and can be a tool to improve mental health.
The following is an example of a situation where this concept has been a tool to improve mental health (details have been changed to protect confidentiality).

After moving to a new city for his job, Jordan found himself feeling isolated. Initially he was excited about his new job, but after he settled in, he found himself spending evenings and weekends alone. He attempted to socialize, but felt awkward and started questioning his ability to form friendships. It didn?t come so easy as when he was in college and surrounded by others his age. Realizing his isolation was affecting his mood and productivity, Jordan sought counseling. We uncovered that his fear of rejection was a major barrier to him being able to make connections.Jordan set a goal to attend one social event related to his interests each week, without focusing too much on the outcome. He joined a local photography club and signed up for group hikes through a community app. At first, conversations were brief and interactions felt forced, but Jordan kept at it ? focusing on listening and asking questions based on shared interests.

He also volunteered for projects that required teamwork, using these as opportunities to practice and improve his social skills. Over time, these interactions became more natural. Jordan found himself looking forward to meetings and outings, and invitations from others started trickling in. Months later, Jordan not only felt more connected in his new city but had also built a small network of friends. This experience highlights the power of a growth mindset and how it can be adapted to different situations. Personal connections, like professional skills, can be developed with effort and persistence.

In closing, the concept of growth mindset helps look at challenges as catalysts for change. Our brains have the capacity for transformation. Psychotherapy is one way to learn how to incorporate a growth mindset into everyday life. If you are interested in working with me, please consider registering for a free consultation.
