Feeling Stressed, Stuck, and Dissatisfied?If you’re reading this, you may have reached a point in your life, as many people do,where you feel stressed, dissatisfied, and stuck. You may notice that:
- You feel lost and unsatisfied
- You’re struggling with self-worth
- You struggle with repeating problematic patterns in relationships, perhaps repeatedly choosing partners that are unhealthy
- You feel dissatisfied in your career or romantic relationship
- You feel like you want to make a change in your life but are unsure where to begin
We all want a life worth living, a life that we feel is meaningful, a life where experience challenges and struggles but by and large we are contented with our choices.
How do you make the changes that you seek?
The first step: You let someone in.
Therapy Can Help You Find Relief
When you choose therapy, you’re choosing to let someone in, to share what’s going on and allow an affirming, encouraging, curious professional to really listen to you and work with you and for you.
Therapy is unique in its capability to both objectively and supportively help you look at yourself. Therapy encourages you to really look at who you are. As you share yourthought life, your actions, and your relationships, you are encouraged to seek the truth and accept opportunities for change.
How Does Therapy Help?
Therapy makes it okay to lay your feelings out for acknowledgement and acceptance, instead of bottling them, putting them on the back burner, or denying them entirely.Therapy sessions are scheduled time set aside to address your own needs and shape your own point of view. It can be extremely satisfying to finally focus on yourself.Therapy provides a safe, caring place to gain clarity about your internal experience, to examine difficult thoughts or challenging emotions. It is through this process that you can achieve the insight and clarity needed to make positive changes in your life.

What Clients Say
Clients who have undergone counseling with me report that they are glad that they chose to seek therapy. They say that they learned valuable skills but that the most important piece that they take from therapy is the insights about themselves and themselves in relation to others; they say that this is what helped them to become unstuck.
Clients report learning to recognize the unhealthy patterns that were holding them back from building satisfying relationships and being able to make changes that have allowed them to feel more connected in their relationships and more content with their life choices. Some clients have found their motivation to pursue dreams that they had given up on. One client said, “I’m so glad that I came to therapy; I feel so much better.” Another client said, “I know I’ve made progress; I can see the difference in my relationships.” With the right approach and in a safe and supportive environment, you, too, can experience relief and begin to live with joy, confidence and peace again.Although you may be ready to seek help, you still may have questions or concerns about therapy…
- Q. I think that I need help, but I’m concerned about the cost of therapy and the time commitment.
The simple truth is that you can’t afford not to engage in therapy, and therapy is an investment in yourself. People often reach a place in their lives where they feel stuck,stressed, like they’re missing out on their lives. It’s important to weigh the cost of therapy vs. a vacation that you take to relieve stress. Taking time for self-exploration will help you truly experience your life.
- Q. It seems awkward to open up to a stranger in therapy…
Often, people are afraid to try therapy. Clients have said that they were nervous about sharing personal details with a stranger. However, clients who have undergone therapy report that they were nervous at first but surprised how comfortable they were at the first session and how easy it was to open up and share about negative emotions and difficult thoughts. They also say that they are glad they entered treatment because they were able to restore hope in their lives. People who engage in therapy also report that they feel more satisfaction in their relationships and with their lives overall. Therapy can help you build a meaningful life that you enjoy.
