Don't let stress, anxiety, depression issues hold you back. Is distress, demoralization, or limiting beliefs wearing you down? If these issues are interferring with your life, then please consider investing in yourself & getting help. Indeed, therapy may be your best choice. If it works for you, it will be among the best investments you ever make. And yet, too many people unnecessarily suffer due to wishful thinking, delays, insecurity, shame, & partial improvements, while not getting completely well. Start getting help and a check up now.
I'm a Stanford-trained psychiatrist with 25+ yrs. of experience developing individually tailored, person-centered brief therapies that "work", namely Evidence- based & Best Practice therapies, blending effective talk therapies +/- medication. The goal is to get a careful assessment and completely well, making the most of your best.
Anxiety & Depressive issues are treatable. Cultural myths can be obstacles, namely "I'm ashamed to need help", "I should be able to overcome these issues by myself", "People will think I'm weak or crazy or worse", etc. Please check me out about my "goodness of fit" for you at my website on the top left (below my picture) or at www.howardgershenfeldmd.com
