Many people think they should be self-sufficient and feel afraid or ashamed about depending on others. One may give up their needs or act in compulsive ways to hold on to a sense of self or to preserve relationships. This can be harmful to the self.

Long ago, one may have unconsciously or consciously buried parts of themselves, indeed for good reasons. These parts can be rediscovered or discovered for the first time in therapy.

A therapeutic relationship provides an opportunity to self-reflect in the presence of a supportive listener. This allows one to take emotional risks in relationships and the prospect of relating in a new way. It often leads to a more authentic self, and the possibility of a better life.

Having seen a range of humanity, including; the end of a relationship, death of a loved one, oppressive situations, crushing anxiety, shame over a secret, or the terror that long-ago trauma can still bring to the present. Sitting with people creates an environment where one can access hidden feelings, relieve suffering, and create a world with hope.

Life circumstances and expectations of one's self and others can interfere with self acceptance. One gets blocked; the blocks get expressed as anxiety, stress, depression, and relationship or work issues. Therapy may lead to short-term relief to make one's days more manageable, and or long-term resolution. The therapeutic process often creates a richer world with more calm, joy, and meaning.
