"Get Unstuck. We human beings sometimes find ourselves "stuck"-- in our relationships, in our feelings, in our depression, in our anxiety. "Why do I keep feeling this way?" "Why do I keep doing that?" "Why do I hurt, and feel hurt by, people I love?" It can feel frustrating and overwhelming in this demanding, screen-filled world. It can feel like a physical burden we carry around, the pain and shame and sadness. We can find ourselves feeling thwarted, unfulfilled, and isolated. Wondering whatever happened to our hopeful selves. Well, you can grow and change and leave that "stuck" place."

"None of us choose the suffering in our lives. Often we suffer in silence, sensing that talking about our problems leads to more pain, confusion, guilt, and shame. And sometimes the stories we tell about ourselves, about our lives, childhood, parents, partner, children, culture, only cements the groove in the record. Going over all the tales of disappointment can leave us feeling misunderstood, bitter, and mistrusting that we will ever be fully received, seen, and valued. What we really want is not for someone to tell us we have depression or anxiety, we want a magic wand."
