I believe anyone can benefit from therapy. Life is difficult and often unfair. We’ve all experienced hardships or traumas that have impacted us in a million different ways. It is easy to become jaded and lose hope.
Therapy can be a safe space where human suffering is translated into healing speech. Sometimes what you really need is a place you can share your baggage without being dismissed or condemned. My years in therapy helped me to realize that therapy can be the one place that all the various parts of you- the good, the bad and the ugly, are not only allowed but even welcomed.
Good and bad are not the best words to describe us. We are hurt and confused. Our life is often a disaster. This word comes from the Latin “dis” (separate) and “astrum” (star). We tend to walk around divorced from our guiding star. In the modern world this means we need help reconnecting with our inner authority. As a therapist I am interested in helping people recover their internal GPS.
