Are you listening to the messages your life is sending you? I believe we constantly receive messages from our lives. This is especially true when we stray off our personal course and begin to feel out of balance. This may present as increased anger, anxiety, depression, relationship conflicts, substance use, or other emotional symptoms. At first it may be very subtle, but then you realize that it’s getting in the way of you being able to live your best life. Today is the day that you listened to your messages.

Maybe you've tried again and again to improve things, but nothing seems to help. Maybe you don't have any place where you can think out loud about what your options really are. If your efforts to improve your life at school, at work, at home or in your relationships have been unsuccessful, you may be feeling stuck. Getting into therapy can be a huge first step toward getting unstuck. But this step requires that you make a decision to try something new. So if you'd like to give it a try, please give me a call.
