"Pain is an unavoidable and a necessary part of life. But suffering -- especially prolonged, "punishing" suffering -- is not. So many people seeking therapy suffer from anxiety, depression, difficulties in relationships, and self-sabotaging behaviors. We use defenses to avoid our emotions. Ironically emotions aren't the SOURCE of pain but in fact are there to HELP us HEAL from the painful losses, hurts and challenges of life. You don't come to therapy to talk about your week. You come for relief from your suffering, for a chance to work through and find meaning in your pain and, just as with a broken bone, heal stronger and better! "

I love my job; I get to connect with patients deepest psyches, sharing intense joy and pain on the path to fuller lives. Therapy involves more openness, vulnerability, and self awareness than you imagined possible as you work through shame, guilt, trauma, naivete, passivity, dependencies, insecurity, etc. You take responsibility for bad habits, limitations and poor decisions. Consequently you take better care of yourself and your loved ones, achieve goals, resolve/manage stressors, grieve losses, and improve relationships, job performance and decision making."
