"Are you feeling stuck? Sometimes, it can be confusing to even know why you feel this way or what's causing it, but you know that something just doesn't feel right anymore. Whether it's due to relationship issues, work stress, other life issues, or a combination of any/all of those, therapy can help provide relief and get you back to who you were/would like to be. This can mean looking to your past to help explain the present or identifying outdated roles and narratives that you are living by, which no longer serve you."
