There is a universal human need for us to be heard and for our pain to be validated. Often, we carry around trauma that becomes buried deep within, revealing itself through unexplainable emotions, thoughts, and actions. It is not weak to ask for guidance in exploring your inner workings, it is part of what makes us human. Therapy provides a safe, compassionate environment for people to discover themselves and their inner strengths. Therapy is challenging, often requiring us to be vulnerable and honest with ourselves, other people, and our therapist.
