Mustering the will to get up and search for a therapist can feel like a chore, and we completely understand. You might be questioning how things got to this point. It's possible you fear your struggles aren't rooted in anything significant and worry that you might simply be self-centered, lazy, or unfixable. Perhaps feelings of hopelessness and despair loom large, convincing you that you're not someone capable of change. These thoughts can be agonizing, and unfortunately, they're often part of our inner critical voice. You may doubt whether a therapist, essentially a stranger, could ever grasp your situation. Nevertheless, a part of you is still reaching out for more. You yearn for that sensation of liberation and vitality, akin to the seemingly carefree lives showcased in selective Instagram snapshots. Can you imagine a life where you aren't bogged down by feelings of shame, overwhelm, or being stuck? What if mornings could be something you look forward to? It might seem unbelievable, but change is closer than you think. We can help. We're with you and we're here to help you be with you.
