When you've felt stuck in the same toxic cycle of your thinking, relationships, at your job, or life in general, it starts to bleed into other aspects of your life. Eventually, you start feeling suffocated. It feels like this is just how it is now, that "This is my life."

You notice that you have fewer choices and feel frustrated and hopeless. You ask yourself, "Is it me or is it everyone else?" Sometimes this frustration and hopelessness manifest as chronic arguing in a primary relationship, playing it safe at work or in love, overeating, or self-criticism. Sometimes it comes in the form of feeling a lack of connectedness to others, decreased productivity, or increased anxiety.

Often, mental illness or pathology isn't what's troubling you. Instead, you find yourself facing the pain and difficulty that accompanies various phases of life; you're unsure of how to manage the shifts and the powerful emotions that accompany them. At many points in our lives, most of us experience difficulty trusting ourselves and our choices, feeling trapped in a challenging and negative mindset, and dealing (or trying to) with conflict.
Whatever's going on, I can help you look at what's happening now, how it came to be this way, and help you find useful strategies to effectively change it.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

Most of us have a hard time asking for help. One of our strongest cultural values as North Americans is "taking care of business on our own," a "do it yourself" mentality. In fact, research shows that one of the top five barriers to seeking treatment is social stigma. (We have so much trouble asking for help that researchers are conducting multiple studies on it!)

Going to therapy doesn't make you weak or flawed. It makes you committed to change for the better. (And actually, it makes you a rebel since asking for help is so against the grain!) It makes you unwilling to be a victim of whatever's troubling you. It keeps you from being someone to whom "life just happens."

If you are looking around these sites, it probably means you're tired of living the way you've been living and are ready to make a change. That shows hope, courage, and resilience. Allowing ourselves to ask for and receive help is a trait associated with a growth mindset. People with a growth mindset are more adept at managing life's challenges and hardships. When you're better at managing challenge and hardships, you don't have to play it so safe, make your work small, and contract into or against the discomfort. You can take risks and try new things because you know you're ok whether you succeed or fail.

You've brought yourself this far. Go for the win.
