A MARSHALL UNIVERSITY COLLEGE STUDENT - ANXIETY AND ALCOHOL ABUSE A college student with problems with alcohol, anxiety and depression for 1 1/2 years who was diagnosed to meet criteria for Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Attention- Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder of the combined type and Alcohol Dependence. Seven years later and now a law school graduate about to sit for a State Bar examination: "I began seeing Dr. Frederick 6 years ago, while a student at Marshall University. I am now a law school graduate. Dr. Frederick has a very different technique and approach than most psychologists. You can pay anyone and they will listen to your problems and talk to you, but do they REALLY help you? Venting is one thing, ya know, getting things off your chest. Therapy is totally different thing - which I feel most psychologists fail on this part. If you have ever psychologist "shopped" you know exactly what I mean. If you want to see someone and actually BE better and not just temporarily "feel" better, then I highly suggest Dr. Frederick. His technique is very hard to find. After a session with him you walk out the door each time with a goal per se. No matter what your problems are, PTSD, ADHD, SELF-ESTEEM, PERSONALITY, ETC. he can and will help. He will guide you through with steps to help you get OVER your problem (not just around it or through it). Things I like about his style that I find is much better than most of the psychologists in this state: He controls the tone/pace. He can easily target the problems you are having and keep the focus directed at them. He gives you homework assignments to work on. (depending on what your specific needs are). For example, giving you an article to read that you will find very helpful, or giving you a list to write of positive things..etc. Just essentially very simple things to do before your next session that you don't even realize at the time how helpful they are. He gives you several coping mechanisms. Whether you are depressed, stressed, sad, overwhelmed..etc. He will help figure out what is best for YOU, and doesn't have some sort of book he goes by to read from to give you advice. He bases his input on the person sitting in front of him coupled with his experience---not from what he learned in college like most of the others. It's not technical with him--it's RELEVENT."-Student at time of therapy, Now a lawyer
