Who hasn’t put things off? Occasional procrastination is normal and causes minimal problems. When procrastination becomes a habit, however, it can sap your self-confidence and undermine your success. Evelyn Sandeen, Ph.D., and Annette Brooks, Ph.D., of Southwest Coaching Psychologists will help you identify the sources of procrastination and provide practical strategies to begin to eliminate barriers to better productivity.
Southwest Coaching Psychologists was founded in 2005 by Sandeen and Brooks to provide coaching in personal goals, career issues, and parenting. They serve clients who want coaches with doctoral-level credentials and experience.
The “positive psychology” movement underlies the philosophy of Southwest Coaching Psychologists. In brief, positive psychology emphasizes the discovery of each individual’s core values and strengths. When a person understands herself in terms of her positive attributes, moving toward a valued goal becomes much more natural. All human beings naturally move toward growth and positive expansion of the self, unless barriers of fear and habit hold them back. Southwest Coaching Psychologists focus on gently aiding the natural path of growth for their clients by supporting them in holding to their own deepest values.
Evelyn Sandeen received her doctorate in clinical psychology from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. In her career since that time she has been the Director of Training at two different psychology internship programs, and has been a clinical and administrative leader. She currently devotes much of her time to teaching and supervision of psychology and psychiatry interns and residents. She is the co-author of two books and several articles, and has continued to participate in clinical research. Evelyn and her husband have two sons who have taught her as much as all her prior education. Her interests lie in increasing the public’s knowledge of helpful psychological principles and issues of personal and spiritual growth.
Annette Brooks received her doctorate in clinical psychology from Oklahoma State University, with a specialty in children and adolescents. She is currently the Director of Behavioral Medicine for the Veterans Administration hospital in Albuquerque. Annette has been active in teaching, supervision, and research throughout her career.
