I've tried everything and I still feel like things aren't working.
Why does life seem so hard sometimes?
Why am I not happy?
Why do other people seem to be able to get it right?
These are some of the thoughts I used to have before I started attending therapy myself. It was long ago now, but I'm here to tell you that we all have struggles and we all just want to feel good and enjoy our lives. It's normal. It's also normal not to know how to do it.
Emotional health is something that isn't commonly taught in our culture. As a matter of fact, it's often considered a strength to stuff our pain down, put on a happy face and pretend that nothing is wrong. In reality, this couldn't be farther from the truth. Your pain is trying to get your attention, it's telling you that something is not quite right. Being open about your difficulties and pain is what leads to real healing and wellness.
Coming to therapy is not just about hoping for change, it's about taking the steps to create the change. It's about having the courage to dive into the depths of you. Pain is your invitation to discover who you truly are, and that is where happiness is found.
I've been where you are. Contact me and let's take the steps together.
