Ginger Myren, LMFT
“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” — Viktor Frankl
Ginger Myren, LMFT has been providing mental health services since 2006 and have worked in a variety of settings with an array of individuals, families, couples and groups dealing with an assortment of life issues.
Currently, Ms. Myren facilitates a parenting course and a few domestic violence/anger management courses here at Aurora Family Counseling Center. In her parenting course, She works from an attachment-based framework, which supports the development and maintenance of parental authority; meanwhile, nurturing the skill set necessary to promote strong parent-child connections that have been identified through research to help parents more often raise children who are self-reliant, academically successful, self-disciplined, well-liked among peers, more resistant to peer-pressure and children who tend to experience a greater sense of emotional well-being throughout life.
In her domestic violence/anger management courses, she works from several theories that are used as a framework to understand intimate partner violence and anger/aggression. Firstly, Ms. Myren pulls from social learning theory, which suggests that emotions and the expression of emotions are learned within one’s family of origin and that what is learned is carried on by the individual in all other interpersonal relationships they find themselves involved in. Secondly, she pulls from the theory of violence as trauma, which views the experience of violence within one’s family of origin as affecting the way current information is processed and acted upon by an individual. And lastly, she works from a neuroplasticity framework that views the brain as being adaptable, that through engaging in activities designed to initiate brain-changes, individuals will be able to acquire new ways of interpreting the situations that influence their emotions and how they act upon those emotions.
It is her desire to help co-create a safe space where everyone involved will be able to connect with their own feelings of power. Where everyone can make choices that will impact their lives and the lives of others connected to them in healthy, respectful and positive ways.
