You don't have to be mentally ill to need help: Life is complex, often confusing and conflicted, and distress can come with the territory.  

When you’re distressed, and you’ve tried everything you know, you might need outside counsel: someone to help you sort out your difficulties, to understand what's going on and what might be done.

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 perspective. Someone to help you understand yourself and what you're up against, to help you sort out your experience.

Since life doesn't divide neatly into academic categories, or arrange itself to suit professions' turf wars, the best help comes from someone with deep knowledge across many disciplines, from the social sciences to the liberal arts and beyond. 

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. He helps you understand yourself, what you're dealing with, and how to comport yourself effectively.

With thirty years experience, and wide-ranging scholarly expertise in several fields, Bob offers supportive, exploratory help in developing greater self-understanding and competence at conducting your life.
