I’m not ok with the way I’m leading my life / achieving my potential / dealing with people. I think it’s all because of my childhood. And the mistakes I made later?
A lot of people have memories they don’t like to look at. Some of these memories are real bad ones. Other people beat themselves up about wasting time. We respect your experience, and we’d like to talk about how to have a different future. If that’s why you’re here, give us a call.
My spouse / partner wants me to “see someone” about my temper and depression.
If your partner doesn’t feel safe and relaxed, for any reason, that’s worth changing. We don’t assume there’s something wrong with you. We guess you’re committed and serious about the future. Come talk to us one time and see how it goes. By the way, David has years of experience helping men with anger.
I think there’s a chemical imbalance in my brain. I’d like to get it adjusted.
We’re more interested in unlocking potential than in talking about sickness. But yes, sometimes the way to get there is to treat physical conditions that change people’s moods or actions. Ask your physician: if there’s a medical problem, they can treat it, or refer you to a psychiatrist. In addition, they may tell you to call a therapist. We’ll be here.
I want to finish this screenplay / mail this resume / get new headshots taken. So… why don’t I?
Hey, purposefulness, productivity and procrastination are some of David’s favorite challenges! He’d love to explore ways to release your passion. Don’t put it off, write him now.
My husband / girlfriend / significant other seems to have a mental illness. Can you fix it?
Set an example by entering therapy yourself (unless you’re perfect and your partner knows you are). Or come in together for couples therapy where your partner can see your commitment to the relationship. You can meet a man, a woman, or – this is a specialty at our office – both together.
Okay, I’m ready to try therapy. But I don’t think you’re right for me: you guys seem too old, too youthful; too caring, too casual; too straight, too sensitive; too quiet, too opinionated; too Asian, white, funny, serious…
You’re probably right. You know your own needs. Feel free to call or email saying what kind of person you would feel comfortable with, and maybe a few words about why you want to see them at this time. We like to help people feel better, so if we know the person you’re looking for, it’ll be a pleasure to put you in touch.
