Most of us are faced with challenges in life. Sometimes these challenges become overwhelming. Other times, we notice a pattern repeating itself that seems destructive or unhealthy. By seeking a therapist, you are indicating you are ready to seek change and find a path towards increased happiness, life satisfaction, and/or coping strategies. While it is easy to follow the path of least resistance or to do what we are used to doing, you are taking the time and making the effort to implement a new direction in your life.
