Is Therapy for you?

Maybe a lot has happened to you in your past and you just want someone to understand what you have gone through.

Or you are trying to cope with a lot of issues and it is just too hard?

To the outside world, you look fine. On the surface, you seem to have what you need but you know different.

Sometimes you tell everyone that you are OK..but are you?

You know there is a problem. You can’t figure out why you are unhappy.

Your ways of coping, such as drinking, gambling too much,. overeating, working too hard, etc. are symptoms of how you are feeling inside
