Times Story About A Gorgeous But Troubled NYC Therapist

You should definitely read the whole thing. A great read from Jacob Bernstein, about a beautiful therapist who struggled with beauty and mental peace, it seems. Read it until the end.

"BOB BERGERON was so relentlessly cheery that people sometimes found it off-putting. If you ran into him at the David Barton Gym on West 23rd Street, where he worked out nearly every morning at 7, and you complained about the rain, he would smile and say you’d be better off focusing on a problem you could fix.

That’s how Mr. Bergeron was as a therapist as well, always upbeat, somewhat less focused on getting to the root of his clients’ feelings than altering behavior patterns that were detrimental to them: therapy from the outside-in."
