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.

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.

Trauma comes in many forms. Whether it's the death of a loved one, abuse and violence, DHS involvement, a bad break-up, chronic illness, criminal justice involvement, chemical dependency, or loss of parental rights; experiencing trauma can feel very isolating. You might find yourself feeling detached from others or having difficulty with developing authentic connections with people. Maybe you feel lost and uncertain about how to carry on with life. Or maybe you're finding yourself lashing out at others with little or no reason. Somedays it can feel like nobody understands your pain or how broken you feel.
