Hey there, I’m Dr. J. Fisher.
If you’re reading this page you probably want to know more about me because a life on your own terms sounds too good to be true. Either that, or you’re just browsing to see what a shrink would say about herself on her business page. Let me share what I do and why I do it so you can see if it would be a good fit to work together.
First, a disclaimer. My favorite movie is Saw. The original from 2004 by James Wan. I love thrillers. More importantly, I love experiences that make my skin crawl. Watching the end of that movie was a pivotal point in my life (I don’t want to blow it for anyone, so if you’ve never watched it, I suggest you skip to the next paragraph). When the supposedly life-less corpse started to move and get up at the end of the movie, I had the heebie-jeebies. Then, it hit me. I take my life for granted. It’s like that moment flipped on some obsessive switch that left me wanting to digest everything related to appreciation and gratitude.
That explains why we won’t be working together within a traditional “clinical” psychology framework. No, I don’t do psychoanalysis. I don’t look for what’s wrong with you or what’s broken. Because there just isn’t. There aren’t any judgments or blame in our space. In turn, I ask that you don’t pretend I’m a glorified listening partner. Whatever previous beliefs you had of therapy or counseling sessions, throw them out the window. In fact, burn them before flushing the ashes down your toilet. I take what I’ve learned, and continue to learn, in the Psychology of Human Experience to figure out how you can live the life you want so desperately. Yes, it’s a science, but it’s also an art. The work we’ll be doing together is a delicate waltz of using what works, but finding what works for you.
Scientists say that we have 1 in 400 trillion chance of being born. Let me put that in perspective for you. You only have a 1 in 292 billion chance of winning the Power Ball. Still shrugging it off? The fact that you’re here, and the fact that you want more, tells me that you don’t mess around. Yet…. you’re not sure if you can do it. Or that you deserve it. Happiness. Meaning. Fulfillment. Let me help you figure all of that out.
Who is it that you want to become? How is it that you want to feel – every day? What will you be able to contribute and what legacy will you leave behind when you start showing up?
Email me, now, so that you can hear your real voice again and shape the life that waits for you ahead.
