Therapy can seem strange from the outside looking in. People often wonder how talking about their life with someone they are just getting to know can help them to better understand themselves, or to find greater peace and fulfillment. I believe that being deeply listened to is a need which everyone shares, and therapy provides an opportunity to experience exactly that. The listening and compassion that a therapist offers opens a space for an exploration of experiences, feelings, and thoughts to invite new ways of seeing, feeling, and thinking. Importantly, therapy also offers a relationship of support, non-judgment, and safety.
