The Earth is On Fire. Now that this is out of the way, finding a therapist is easy. Finding a therapist that isn't a neurotypical/cis-hetero/white person is hard. I mean, you're on the website. My name is Derrick and I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and I am fully in tune with the ridiculousness that is our current reality. Most therapists are probably just going to teach you some "coping skills for managing your anxiety", when honestly-there are some damn good reasons to be anxious and depressed right now. In fact, my style of therapy is focused on what it would be like to be a therapist during the apocalypse(s).
I am going to help you come up with a persona to get through the ridiculousness. To survive an apocalypse that most people aren't acknowledging, you will need to be able to play various roles in life and be able to manage your own internal/external boundaries so that the raving band of marauder...I mean "negative thoughts" don't overtake you.
I like to have fun and I do recognize how hard it has been over the last few years. An inability to set boundaries is the main reason people suffer so much from mental health problems and I will teach you how to do so without feeling guilty. Whether its "the apocalypse" or "family dinner with antivaxxers", I will make sure you have the tools to survive.

The Situational Therapist's Groups

Men Growing Through Divorce

This is a support group for men growing through divorce. I use my own experience as a man going through an unexpected and sudden divorce as well as the trials and tribulations I experienced and what it took to get back on my feet. There are no resources for men going through divorce and it is my hope that this group will fill this void. Please email me at derrick@thesituationaltherapist.com if you are interested in joining.
