To those around you, you may look like you have it all together. But on the inside, you are screaming. You're hiding the obsessive thoughts and "crazy" compulsions you engage in so you can maybe lower your level of anxiety. You can't sleep due to your anxiety. You've tried to make changes, but it never gets better. These are secrets that you think no one will understand.

Our first priority when we meet will be to establish trust and mutual respect in the relationship so that you begin to feel comfortable and safe. Therapy can be a rewarding experience but for many people it can feel daunting and unfamiliar at first. Our initial sessions will be focused on establishing safety. I also believe that clients are best served by helping them to understand their own experiences, strengths and by exploring both positive and traumatic experiences from their past. I take a teaching approach, often providing education about attachment and neuroscience, as clients express interest.

My name is Jason Drwal. I’m a clinical psychologist. I help people who feel overwhelmed, uncertain about how to deal with life, and are just stuck. If you’re like most people who come to see me, you’re probably not even sure why you’re feeling so bad and what you’ve tried to fix it isn’t working. On top of all of this, there isn’t anyone to turn to for help. You don’t have to struggle through this on your own? I’ve helped hundreds of clients overcome these problems. That experience has helped me to learn why most people struggle, what stops them from getting better, and what they can do to fix it right away.

These things can affect all aspects of your life and lead to a lot of pain, but things can be better. Trust me, I understand how hard it can be. I’ve experienced depression and anxiety off-and-on for much of my life, and I work in a high stress career, so stress is the norm.

Grief can be like a baseball bat swung through life, shattering what was familiar and replacing it with intense sorrow, overwhelming emotions, and seemingly endless questions. Similarly, professional compassion fatigue can ravage one's life and leave a tattered, frayed feeling. What is your grief, fatigue, asking of you, needing from you? I strive to provide a confidential space where you can run your hand over the familiar-unfamiliar terrain of your life and begin to ask these questions. A space to honor your beloved, yourself & your grief, and your future. I whole-heartedly believe it's possible to grieve and live well.
