Conventional wisdom in the last ten or fifteen
years has embraced the notion that virtually every form of distress signals mental disorder. The evidence, though, just isn't
there. Life is complex, often confusing and conflicted. Distress can come with the territory.
When we’re distressed, and we’ve tried everything we know to no avail, we might have
a medical condition that requires treatment. Or we might need outside counsel to sort out our difficulties.
A counselor provides an “auxiliary mind,” so to speak. An alter ego. Someone to bring to
bear, on your behalf, a range of knowledge that you simply haven’t had occasion to acquire. Someone to provide emotional
balance and an objective eye on your circumstances. Someone to help you sort out your experience.
That's the sort of care Bob Fancher aims to provide at Life
Therapy. He doesn't offer gimmicks or tricks to manipulate your mood, nor does he socialize you into some preconceived notion
of how you should live. With thirty years experience, and wide-ranging scholarly expertise evidenced by his publications,
Bob offers supportive, exploratory help in developing greater self-understanding and competence at conducting your life.
