Why are you working in therapy/mental health?

I had wanted to be in the health field since I was young, starting with wanting to be a doctor. I became fascinated with psychology and human behavior from my first year of college, and decided to change tracks from biology/pre-med to psychology and never looked back. I’ve felt that being a helper/healer in some capacity was what I should be doing with myself and my career. It feels right. Continue reading Meet Our Therapists: Katherine Glick

As I sat, our glances met and I thought to myself, “What should I talk about? Is he going to be able to help me? Will he judge me? He doesn’t seem eager to see me.”

Avoidance isn’t the solution, though. In the long run, avoidance actually reinforces your fear that you can’t handle the situation. The worry becomes cemented and self-confidence lowers. Continue reading Don’t Avoid Your Worries! Manage Them With These 5 Strategies

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard from clients, “Other mom’s don’t seem to have this problem.” This statement could be about depression, anxiety, panic, marital issues, kid issues, trouble balancing or a myriad of other topics. When I ask why they think no one else struggles, social media is inevitably part of the answer. Continue reading Social Media and Moms: Feeling Inadequate in a “Fakebook” World
