Gary Gissler, LMSW

“Therapy is an opportunity to deal with personal crises, to confront anxiety or depression or to simply engage is exploring why one doesn’t feel “right.”  In therapy we are able to engage in the possibilities in life that seem out of reach and confront the feeling that there is something missing in one’s life.”

I’ve worked for 15 years with people who experience depression, anxiety, hopelessness, substance abuse, family issues, sexual issues, and professional crises.

I work with people on a wide range of issues. The following are a few of my specialties (this list is not all-inclusive):

  • Personal Growth

  • Creativity

  • Self-Esteem

  • Substance Abuse

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Relationship Issues

  • Career Issues

  • Sexuality Issues

  • Family Dysfunction

If I have never been to therapy before, what should I expect? How do I know if I should go, and how do I start?

Everything is a leap of faith. Starting therapy may be a leap of faith that is symbolic of the leap of faith you might just need to take in your life(!)
