Our anxiety does not come from thinking about the future, but from wanting to control it.
— Khalil Gibran

Feel stuck or like each day is just a repeat of the last? Going through your day with the sense that something is off and if only something would happen or get better than all would be well and you’d be happy again. It is almost as if a layer of plastic wrap is covering your Thanksgiving dinner, allowing you to see it, but teasing you, keeping you from experiencing the delicious smells and tastes of it. And because you are a man you can’t let anyone know or see something is off. You are supposed to suck it up and soldier on. The stress and the weight is only building. Perhaps a round of golf, a beer with friends helps blow off a little steam, but it never allows you to get ahead. It is just enough to keep your head above water.

Whether you are working through something that is recent or it has been bothering you for months or years, you are reading this because you want something more, something different. Your struggle with anxiety and stress is leading to confusion, depression, failure, hurt, relationships or something else. The key to unlocking your joy could very well be in the approach. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an evidenced based approach to helping many individuals resolve the challenges before them.

I thought too much, lived too much in the mind. It was hard to make decisions.
— Donna Tartt
