Do you cut off part of yourself in service of others?
Do you feel stuck and wonder how you’ve gotten to where you’re at?
Are you often thinking that you must be missing something in life?
You are not alone. These can be a confusing and isolating feelings but it does not have to be endured indefinitely. Counseling can help by encouraging you to explore the ways you operate in the world. By uncovering unconscious patterns and integrating the varying aspects of who you are, you can begin to live more fully and aware. Sometimes letting go of who you thought you were, can unleash the possibilities of who you can become. Therapy may be the catalyst you need to empower yourself and conquer the obstacles that are holding back your potential.
“It is not the critic that counts; nor the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood...who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly....”
- President Theodore Roosevelt, Speech at Sorbonne, April 23, 1910
