Lost? Out of sorts?

You don't have to go this alone.

What's going on? 

Are you feeling out of sorts?  

Are things just not falling into place for you?

Is there a thought that won't go away, that you've perhaps tried to take away through drugs, drinking, or some other unhealthy way?

Or, maybe you feel like things are going well, but you're afraid something bad will happen soon?

Has someone said to you that maybe you should see a therapist about this?

In today's world, it's not uncommon to experience stress, anxiety or depression. But when it becomes dysfunctional and interferes with how you live your life, that's when a helping hand may be the right place to turn to.

What's a session like?

When someone thinks about therapy, most likely an image of a long, leather couch with a stuffy older person in a suit with a pad and his back to you saying things like "Uh huh," or someone making some obscure connection between what's going on now and events that happened to you as an infant comes to mind.

While some of that may have a grain of truth, it's not exactly what therapy is in modern times.

Therapy is about sitting in an open, inviting, and safe space, while someone listens to your concerns with a caring heart, hearing the story that's being told like a song that's being performed. It might be slightly off key, or certain aspects too loud or to soft, however this is where the therapy comes in. It's this process that helps you to fine tune it into your own masterpiece.

This is done through the use of capitalizing on your individual strengths, teaching you valuable life skills and offering you other tools to assist you through a collaborative journey towards healing. This journey is between you and the therapist, both of you an expert in your own ways. After all, a therapist may have the instruments for which to perform the masterpiece, however it is you that has the song inside!
