This type of therapy is for you if you are currently feeling out of balance. Anxiety keeps you up at night when you run in your mind all the potential “what ifs” and none of them make you confident. If you have lost trust in your own ability to calm yourself down and give yourself hope to overcome the struggles of your mind. Maybe you are feeling lost in general. The things that used to give you joy no longer spark your heart and they might even feel like chores. Your relationships feel distant and some might even be on the verge of breaking. Looking for help can be terrifying but also it can be exactly what you need.
