Marriage & Family Therapist Associate, MA, PhD, AMFT
When we are overwhelmed and struggling it’s easy to feel like life is going in the wrong direction, or worse, that who we are is wrong. What it usually means, however, is that we are human, and that our needs for connection are being unmet—connection with ourselves, with others, with a sense of belonging, with meaning and purpose. And if our attempts at getting rid of and coping with our suffering go unexamined, it often makes things worse—we remain in the shadows, in unwanted but all too familiar situations. But our pain does not need to determine our lives. There is a way through, and I can help.
