Perfectionism – Dr Sloat wrote her doctoral dissertation on perfectionism, and, because she did in-depth research that led to conceptualizing and redefining perfectionism, she feels she is especially qualified to help perfectionists better understand and cope with perfectionism. Striving for the unobtainable (perfection) is draining, self-defeating and sometimes pathological, and it can predispose one to depression, social anxiety, stress-related illnesses, and many other undesirable conditions. Contact Dr Sloat if you think perfectionism is becoming a problem for you.
Compulsive Gambling – Although Dr Sloat works with those who struggle with addiction in general (click here to read about her approach), she is especially knowledgeable about the challenges compulsive gamblers face. Contact Dr Sloat re: specialized treatment for gambling addiction.
Sexual Orientation – Although acceptance for those who identify as LBGT is far more prevalent today, there are still many who struggle with various aspects of LBGT life. For instance, lesbians, bi-sexuals, gays and the transgendered may struggle with things like labeling or identifying themselves as LBGT, self-acceptance, coming out to friends, family, etc., and relationship issues specific to LBGT couples. And those close to them (friends, family etc.) may struggle with acceptance or understanding of how their loved ones came to be LBGT. Is it a choice? Are they born that way? How do I treat them? Contact Dr Sloat in order to demystify or get help with any of these issues.
To address any of the above, contact Dr Sloat at: (250) 884-9041 …OR… DrSharolynSloat@gmail.com
