Hi! I’m Andrew Gladstone-Highland
I enjoy helping individuals and families to get to know themselves better, solve problems, and ultimately, break generational cycles of behavior that the individuals have identified as holding them back.
Before becoming a therapist, I had ten years of work experience in the non-profit sector and in the United Methodist Church – I believe that gives me a more universal and holistic perspective on the mental health challenges that people face, as opposed to a strictly clinical perspective, which can often feel stigmatizing and isolating to people. I have a relaxed, conversational style, as I believe that genuine connection is the foundation that enables any helpful therapy to take place.
Become the version of yourself you can be most proud of
Despite what many people think, mental health is not being happy all the time
Instead, it involves having access to the full range of emotions. It involves being able to feel all of those different things, and when appropriate, being able to express those feelings to others.
This is particularly challenging for boys and men, due to traditional gender roles, which have often emphasized not showing much emotion. For many boys and men, sadness and anxiety can easily turn into anger, and into a corresponding inability to manage strong feelings. I help you untangle those knots, to feel safe enough to recognize and express all of your feelings appropriately.
I have had multiple clients say that the experience of therapy has changed their lives for the better
It enables them to understand their own feelings and thoughts to a greater extent, communicate much better with their loved ones, and ultimately, become the kinds of adults that they have wanted to become, as opposed to following in the unhealthy patterns of some of their own family members.
But not every client experiences this kind of dramatic growth
Wherever you are in your journey, I’m here for you.
Imagine if you didn’t have to go through every day with the burden of anxiety and depression
You can start feeling better fast. Depending on the nature of the challenges you are trying to address, many people start feeling significant relief after just a few sessions. Simply knowing that you aren’t alone can be a tremendous comfort.
We will work together to help you meet your goals!
