You can’t to take it anymore! Great. Now - what ARE you going to do? When you are searching for a therapist, you want to know that your therapist “gets it”. After all if you want to vent you could call a friend. So you turn to the professionals who are going to help you build up your arsenal. I firmly believe that is the fundamental piece of what people need to move through their pain, struggles, and transitions. Together we can work towards building a peaceful, whole, complete self with tools and skills to move forward.
