Access your inner strengths, build skills for resilience and wellness
“I don’t see how talking about it is going to help anything.” I hear this a lot, and I’ve thought it myself too. Talking about painful things only brings up the pain, right? How is it supposed to help us feel better?
There’s a reason people keep going to therapy, though. There’s something about talking with someone who isn’t going to judge, who isn’t involved in the situation, who has been trained to help people gain insight and learn tools to cope, that helps a person heal and move forward in their life.
When you go to therapy, you talk with a safe person who is there to serve you and who has spent a good amount of time studying how to help you best.
Therapy isn’t just about talking about your problems – it’s about understanding what brought you here to this present moment, and how to use the inner strengths you already have and skills you learn in appointments to make a better, more fulfilling life for yourself.
“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”Brené Brown
