"Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. So why therapy now? What are your hopes, dreams, and sense of the future from therapy? Problems and obstacles only survive and thrive when they are supported and backed up by particular ideas, beliefs, and principles, and can feel like a relentless need to escape a moment that never ends. Exploring the details and effects of these obstacles will help lead to the discovery of different outcomes yet not discovered. "
