  • I’m not going to tell you to get over it. I’m going to help you get through it.


    You’ve found your way here, perhaps because you are an overthinker, overachiever, over-doer, or over-stresser. Many of my clients are all of these at once. No matter how “high-functioning” you manage to be, you’re definitely overwhelmed. You’re looking for support—and compassion—because you’re struggling with things like anxiety, depression, trauma, obsession, identity, spiritual issues, and existential questions. You’re worried, wary, and weary.

    You’re looking for someone who understands your struggles to manage your feelings—or even register them—amid all the endless thinking, ruminating, obsessing, managing, coping, improving, adjusting, adapting, doing, performing, and excelling.

    I get it, and I know just how very exhausted you are—tired of trying to outrun some hamster wheel, tired of the loads you’re carrying, tired of being general manager of the universe.

    I am so glad you’re searching for the support you know you need. I know it’s not easy to ask for help. I know you’re wondering if I might be the person who can help you. This site is here for one reason: to help you figure it out.

    I am trauma-certified, and I specialize in spiritually integrated psychotherapy. I invite you to explore my site to learn more about me, my practice, and how I can help you. Please contact me today for a free and confidential 20-minute consultation, to discover whether I am the right therapist for you. Don’t wait any longer to get the help you need.

    About Deborah Birkett

    I love working with adults who find themselves wrestling with spiritual and existential anxieties, who are struggling with life’s often unanswerable questions. I deeply understand what it is to agonize over these problems. I can’t give you answers on a silver platter—I wish I had them—but I can help you learn to love the questions. Together, we can find ways to respond to what feels unmanageable, to stand firm in the face of profound uncertainty, to find freedom from thoughts and beliefs that are making you suffer. Not everything can be fixed, but we can figure out how to carry what can’t be fixed.

    “When we listen, we offer with our attention an opportunity for wholeness. Our listening creates sanctuary for the homeless parts within the other person. That which has been denied, unloved, devalued by themselves and by others. That which is hidden.”

    – Rachel Naomi Remen
