Those I work with are often quite stuck. They may even be in crisis. They struggle with anxiety, depression, upsetting or intrusive thoughts/voices, unexplainable feelings in their bodies, painful memories, questions about gender or sexuality, substance abuse, suicide and more. These experiences may interfere with friendships, parenting, romantic relationships and/or work. The symptom, no matter what particular form it takes, is a message that wants to be heard and hopes to be spoken.
