People come to psychotherapy for a wide variety of reasons. Making our way in this world demands so much self reliance and yet we are given very little opportunity to get to know ourselves well. We keep our fears and uncertainty about whether or not we even have what it takes to survive the current struggle very close to our chests. This is such a fragile place to live. Ignoring our emotions and “soldiering on” creates a life of isolation, pain, and confusion. Whether it manifests as depression, anxiety, PTSD, or simply uncertainty about how to wish, desire, and create a life worth living, this alienation from our own thoughts and feelings can cause a host of difficulties.
