Brenda Gesell, Ph.D.

Brenda Gesell View Specialties

Are you highly critical of yourself? Do you take pride in the fact that you need very little from others? If you make a mistake, are you overwhelmed by feelings of failure?

These qualities may have once helped you succeed but they can also lead to relationship problems, anxiety and bouts of depression. I would like to help you quiet your inner critical voice and gain more psychological freedom in your relationships.

Achieving more and trying harder are not the answer. Rather, grace, self-compassion and authenticity are the way to healing. I would like to help you learn to enjoy your whole self - imperfections and all. I have a warm and down-to-earth style and I have been practicing therapy for over 16 years.  
I look forward to hearing from you.
