 There are no straight lines in the universe. Life doesn't
travel in perfectly straight lines. It moves more like a winding river. More
often than not, you can only see to the next bend, and only when you reach that

next turn can you see more -T. Harv Eker.

Life can been full of uncertainty and sometimes navigating the uncertainty can be challenging. Therapy can help you find your inner compass.
