Sessions can be conducted by telephone, video, or in-person.
During your sessions, I will address your specific needs as well as those related to the cognitive and emotional distress you might experience during these stressful times.
The uncertainty of life's course impacts all areas of our lives. Understandably, the stress of uncertainty can cause a number of new, as well as exacerbate existing, psychological challenges, including:
|Depression||Sleeping Irregularity||Decreased Social Connections|
|Anxiety||Poor Eating Habits||Unproductive Lifestyle|
|Low-Mood||Lack of Exercise||Pessimistic Outlook|
When you experience elevated levels of stress for any reason, it is important that you not allow yourself to become a victim of despair. It is especially important to focus on strengthening your mental health and managing your distress to maintain a calm mind and to help prevent immune system compromise.
I can apply my many years of experience, with helping hundreds of people, to help you improve the quality of your life by improving your levels of emotional resiliency, emotional stability, and decreasing your stress.

With your wellness in mind,
Barry D. Schwartz, Ph.D.
