"There are seasons of our lives that are more challenging than others. Sometimes we are aware of the circumstances causing our distress. At other times we just feel stuck or uncertain. In these seasons we may find that we experience unrelenting anxiety, feelings of despair or hopelessness, intrusive and disruptive thoughts, an increase of conflict in our relationships, the development or increase of harmful behaviors, or all of the above. Getting support from a therapist can provide a relational space where self-awareness can deepen, emotional healing can occur, relationships can be repaired, and meaning can be made. "
