Danielle was raised in a well-adjusted and happy family. She had a normal birth, was a fussy child, and seemed to startle quite easily. Growing up her mother was anxious and often took Danielle to bed depressed blaming it on female problems. Her father was not very affectionate. Both of her parents demanded good performances in the academics and socially. Failure to perform up to standards resulted in punishment and emotional distance from her mother and father.  Aspects of her personal history related to her developing problems.     Danielle was an above average student pursuing a degree in business with a minor in marketing. While attending school for her MBA she developed burnout. She took a smaller job in a major city 300 miles from her house and college. After 4 months of dating her boyfriend, they got married. The intensity weaned into a steady routine marked neither by contentment not by obvious problems. Over time their parallel lives turned into minimal interactions.     Danielle recently turned 26 years old and sought out assistance from the University Counseling Center. Her friend referred her to the counseling center after having suicidal thoughts. She had significant problems with work, marriage, and being unhappy. A structured interview and several tests revealed a variety of phobias and degrees of depression and anxiety throughout her life. During high school, Danielle developed a fear of small spaces, snakes, insects, and spiders. Her fears limited work abilities and outdoor activities. Aspects of her personal history related to her developing problems over time.     Therapists use personal history to decide on treatment plans for what possibly is the main factor of the disorder. Through a variety of perspectives and treatments symptoms can diminish quite quickly. In Danielle’s case I would assume existential, behavior, and positive psychotherapy treatments would be the best action plan.     Existential therapy emphasizes free will, self-determination and the search for meaning. The therapist will encourage Danielle to make rational choices while developing a sense of maximum potential through self-awareness. Through time she will have to continually re-create herself because life meaning constantly changes. Anxiety, depression, claustrophobia, and fears inhibit her ability to make authentic, meaningful, and self-directed choices. Treatment will increase her self-awareness and self-understanding to focus on life-enhancing experiences. In the end, she will overcome anxiety triggers and guide herself to responsible potential.     Behavior therapy is linked to classical and operant conditioning. Classical conditioning is defined as learning by associations. Whereas operant conditioning is defined as learning by reinforcements. Generally, if a behavior is learned it can also be unlearned. Flooding of Danielle’s worst fears would have the best outcome. The exposure to phobic objects or situations for an extended period of time will eventually extinguish the fear.     Positive psychotherapy observes the difference in the principles of hope and balance. Hope examines disruption in order to find positive qualities. Balance focuses on the content areas of body/sense, achievement/activities, contact/environmental, and fantasy/future. Each principle would provide a variety of coping mechanisms for Danielle. Observation seeks the realization of upsetting or unpleasant situations. Inventory correlates the differences between conflicts and capabilities. Situational support encourages focus on the positive traits. Verbalization seeks the discussion of issue or problem areas. Development of goals desires for achievable goals in a long-term setting.     Danielle’s history isn’t grossly abnormal. Issues and problem areas embedded in Danielle’s life structure lead her to the counseling center. Treatment plans are individualized however each technique will allow her to achieve a sense of inner peace. The ability to love, savor, or have attachment will take time. After therapy sessions, Danielle will be able to have a strong sense of gratitude, forgiveness, optimism, and meaning.
