I work with adults using humanistic and existential approaches. This means I view emotional distress and troublesome behaviors as natural human reactions to common life challenges. Despite conventional wisdom, there is no scientific evidence that they are dysfunctions of the mind or brain. Instead, they are personal, spiritual, political, financial, moral, and existential challenges that we all face. They can be very emotionally disruptive, but rest assured, there is nothing wrong with you or your brain. Calling them "mental illnesses" or "disorders" is very misleading and potentially harmful.
The best way to help you is to treat you respectfully as a fellow human traveler, and not as a patient who is sick. Seeing these problems as medical ones does nothing more than alienate you and cause more pain. Psychiatric drugs merely suppress emotions and they can be dangerous.
