Even as we struggle with personal problems, or work to solve problems with a relationship, it's natural to have questions about reaching out for help. You may wonder whether you will feel comfortable with the person you call, and may be uncertain about how therapy can help."

"In the wake of the '17 & '18 NorCal Firestorms, gallant people from all walks of life who rose to the occasion are becoming aware of burnout, moral injury and compassion fatigue. Everyone has a story, but the best, brightest and bravest among us are often hesitant to tell theirs. Dealing with extreme challenges can overwhelm your coping mechanisms, creating a negative domino effect. Inside, you lose sight of your purpose, your perspective, your intrinsic value. Outside, the world loses the full benefit of an important asset: the only You it has. Before that happens, it's smart to seek professional support."
