Have you ever felt lonely, sad, unfair, frustrated, overwhelmed, have nowhere to go, and no one to turn to?
“You are strong enough to solve the problem by yourself.”
“Asking for help is weak.”
“It is your fault, your problem, not my concern.”
“You should/shouldn’t do it.”
How many times have you or other people told you those statements? How many times do you pray for a change in you and the people around you, however, it rarely succeeds?
Individual therapy provides you a safe and non-judgmental space to express the whole of yourself, to help you deepen your understanding of yourself, and to build skills and confidence to heal trauma, reform, restart, and regain your power in life again.
Do you feel you encounter a cold wall when experiencing conflict with your partner? As though neither of you is hearing each other and validation seems impossible?

“You ask too much!”
“This was just like the last time! How come you never change?”
“Forget it, you'll never understand. This conversation is over.”

“They always side with you because you are the perfect child and their favorite!”
How many times have those statements come out during a family blowout and it seems unattainable to make everyone satisfied in the family? Where does it seem like everyone just wants to take instead of giving? Until everything has become too overwhelming to handle?
