""These mountains you are carrying, you were only supposed to climb." Najwa Zebian. I believe that we are here to grow emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually. Every experience and relationship is here to reflect something back to us and help us grow. That said, those very experiences can be daunting and sometimes push us to the edge of everything that we know. This is where we can get stuck or stalled. That stuckness comes in many forms: depression, anxiety, panic, low self esteem, relationship problems, identity crisis, stress intolerance, high levels of sensitivities, eating disorders, addictions, etc.,"

"Wouldn't it be nice to become more clear about how you want to live your life? The dynamic process of patient and therapist working together so that troubling thoughts and feelings, unrealized dreams and hidden fears can emerge in the therapy session strengthens the ability to grow in intimate relationships. Working with the concept of how individuals balance both the need for autonomy and the need for connection, I will help you sort out how to emotionally and physically love without losing yourself."

There are a lot of different ways one can be stuck, physically (pain), emotionally, socially, professionally, with a substance and many others. Like spinning your tires when stuck in the mud.
