Some people have waited a long time and have suffered with something difficult, even becoming accustomed to discomfort or a painful experience before seeking help. Others desire increased satisfaction with one or more areas of their life and are seeking understanding and an increased sense of wellbeing.
While each person's circumstances may be unique there are many things we all have in common. Everyone wants a good life. And on some level we have all experienced pain, disappointment, hope, joy, fear, sadness and, at times, confusion among many other things that give shape and meaning to life.
Whether you have a clear need in seeking counseling, such as a crisis, traumatic experience, or significant life change or a more subtle sense of wanting to experience greater fulfillment and satisfaction, counseling is a process of personal growth and healing. The counseling process is one path to doing this.
