JANET SCHRAGER PH.D.
Stop and smell the roses!
I have 30 years of experience as a clinical psychologist. In the past few years, I have followed the burgeoning field of positive psychology and have become inspired by the bright minds of Barbara Fredrickson and Martin Seligman. I encourage others to become knowledgeable about positive psychology not only because of how it is affecting others throughout the world, but how it has impacted my own life.
THERAPY OR COACHING?
Reaching and maximizing your potential
Not everyone can achieve well being on their own. Psychotherapy brings people closer to well being and stability by improving their mental health. The therapist addresses mental illness and adjustment problems.
Coaching helps people find their strengths and use them to achieve their goals and ambitions. The relationship between coach and client is a co-relatoinship which derives from support and guidance. Coaching is for people who are creative resourceful and whole, who are looking to take life to the next level.
POSITIVITY IN SCHOOLS
Giving students the tools for success
As a clinical psychologist I have worked with many clients in different age groups. I especially appreciate working with adolescents and teens. Through the years I have helped children adjust to transitions and challenges that they are facing. As I have embarked on my positive psychology journey, I have found a passion for sharing these tools for success with students.
