Or maybe you just feel stuck and like you aren't satisfied with life even though you "should be." Maybe you've had a little bit of therapy before, but it feels like just talking about your problems isn't enough. You're looking for real life skills you can use to help yourself think, feel and live better.

Life often seems to move so quickly, barely allowing a chance to take in all that we have experienced. Especially in times of change or intense grief, you may want a space to process your experiences-both the mundane moments and major life-changing events-in order to understand what is going on inside. Therapy can be the perfect space to sort through your experiences, search for meaning and understanding, and discern the path forward that is right for you.
Our real journey in this life is interior; it is a matter of growth, deepening, and of an ever greater surrender to the creative action of love and grace in our hearts. Thomas Merton wrote this a half-century ago, but it is still appropriate today.
