Being "sane" in this world might be crazy. If you’re looking for a therapist who will not pathologize you or talk down to you, we might be a good fit. Whether or not you are dealing with extra baggage like anxiety, depression or relationship problems, you are bound to feel overwhelmed right now. This doesn’t mean that you aren’t doing ok, or even thriving, in other areas of your life. I get that. I also get that thriving in some areas of life doesn't mean you aren't really, deeply struggling in other areas. You can look completely put together, but not feel that way at all some of the time.
