People seek therapy for many reasons. It may be prompted by crisis, transitions, hopefulness, hopelessness, loss, feeling stuck, or many other factors. A loud (or shaky) voice inside says something needs to change. Whatever your reason, exploring the possibilities is a great first step. Gaining insight, learning new skills and working toward a more satisfying life takes both courage and hard work but is often worth the effort. It can help to have a guide and partner in this process. When you find the right therapist for you, this collaboration can be powerful and productive.
