ou may be facing challenges: depression, anxiety or grief, feelings of discontent with relationships or work. You may experience hopelessness or a sense of meaninglessness. You may find that you feel stuck, knowing what you “should” do, but repeating the same repetitive cycle of thought or behavior, which leads to a familiar unhappy outcome and feeling of dissatisfaction.
You may have the support of family or friends, or you may not have any meaningful support at all; whichever describes you, you may be thinking that you need a different kind of help. My task as a therapist is to meet you where you are, to see you as you are, and to help you find your own answers and realize the possibilities of what your life can become.
When one is troubled, confused, or experiencing the weight of sorrow and pain, it is truly possible to move through this darkness, loosening the tethers that tie one to depression or anxiety or grief. Such difficult times can become doorways, opportunities for renewal.
This is a process of discovery, release, and growth. It is an opportunity to heal those deep injuries that bind us in unproductive patterns, bringing freedom and allowing development and maturation. It is the fulfillment of what is possible. It is a deeply optimistic experience, banking on the inborn, deep yearning for health and fruitful connection to self and others. No other adventure can give the rewards that can be gleaned from the inner search.
