There is so much uncertainty in life and a lot we are unable to predict, control, or avoid. We are all managing the inevitabilities of our experiences - the disappointments, the successes, the worries, the self-doubt, and, ultimately, the urge to find meaning and discover our place in the world.
We are also facing unprecedented bad news. The pandemic, along with political turmoil, racial divisions, and threats facing our environment can feel overwhelming. In my work as a therapist, I have found that people willing to learn more about themselves are empowered to create a richer and more meaningful experience of life. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to helping people feel better, but a therapist's job is to understand you - your unique story, history, needs, patterns, and feelings. Through this process, positive change begins to take place. You can better understand you. This is the place where self-love begins.
