Pema Chodron once said “nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know.” People seek therapy for a variety of reasons: discomfort, pain, depression, anxiety, or stress. Other reasons may include: feeling overwhelmed with problems, relationships, or life. Maybe a friend, a loved one, or someone at work encouraged you to seek help. Through the development of a close and trusting relationship, therapy can help you face what is difficult in your life. Therapy can be an opportunity to awaken to self-knowledge, growth, and change. Through this process of transformation, relationships can be enhanced, purpose and perspective can be uncovered, and life can be just a little sweeter.
