To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.                  e. e. Cummings

Sometimes even very smart and successful people have difficulties in their lives and find it helpful to talk with someone.  During these periods, it’s helpful to have an objective listener to help you sort things out.  While counseling can feel as comfortable as talking to a trusted friend, a therapist isn’t personally affected or motivated by the outcome of your decisions, and all of your information is kept strictly confidential.  Also, a therapist is trained to facilitate the discussion so that your time is highly productive. This can help you focus in on the answers within you that may be clouded by the noise of every day life.

But the noise doesn’t just come from outside in the world.   Sometimes the noises are equally as loud inside our own brain.  Psychotherapy can help you identify the factors that contribute to areas of dissatisfaction in your life and find effective tools to deal with the psychological, behavioral, interpersonal, and environmental causes.
