Life is complex, often confusing and conflicted. Distress comes with the territory, for most everyone, sooner or later.  

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.

Maybe you need to sort out some contradictions or incoherence of your inner life. To identify and examine beliefs, habits, hopes, and values you've had for so long you don't even recognize them, or how they're causing you problems. To rethink your sense of what you're about. To expand or update your understanding of your circumstances, or how important parts of your life work--or don't work. Maybe you just need to learn some things you don't know yet. In any of these cases, you'll do better with an expert, supportive, outside eye to help.

That's the sort of care Bob Fancher aims to provide at Life Therapy.

Bob doesn't offer gimmicks or tricks to manipulate your mood, nor does he socialize you into some preconceived notion of how you should live. No one-size-fits-all generic therapy advice. He doesn't indoctrinate you into some sort of fashionable secret-of-happiness fantasy.

He helps you understand yourself, what you're dealing with, and how to comport yourself effectively--and offers you the emotional support you need to make the changes you need.

Put in plain language, he won't blow sunshine up your butt, but he will help you straighten out your shit. 

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.
