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.

Our lives can be busy and filled with daily stress. Sometimes this stress leads us to believe we made the wrong choices when it comes to our relationships, career, etc. Sometimes we begin to doubt our capabilities and we compare our performance to what we see in others or in the media. During times of stress, we can develop unhealthy coping styles. We may begin to isolate, push people away, or make impulsive decisions about our lives. When individuals have additional stressors, these feelings may only become worse.

I believe therapy is a way to develop a secure connection that can be rare in everyday life. Developing this connection allows one a space to express authentically what may have been hidden or not heard. Within the safety of this space, real change can begin to occur. So often we believe that it is by applying willpower to an issue that we can instigate change, and are left feeling defeated in the end. In therapy, we get the chance to take these moments of defeat and transform them. We can reorganize, reorient, gain hope, and live more satisfying lives.
