Searching for a Therapist?

Professor of psychology at Arizona State University, Suniya Luthar, states in NYTimes Anxiety article “There’s always one more activity, one more A.P. class, one more thing to do in order to get into a top college.  Kids have a sense that they’re not measuring up.”  Another large contributor to anxiety where students are comparing themselves is through the overuse of social media.
