There was a new voice which you slowly recognized as your own
, which kept you company as you strode deeper and deeper into the world,
determined to do the only thing you could do
, determined to save the only life you could save. ~ Mary Oliver
Is This The Right Therapy For Me?
You know this approach to therapy is right for you if:
you trust the process of living into the difficulties that life presents to find your way to the other side.
you are curious about "what makes you tick."
you understand the work of therapy to be that of strengthening, making whole, gathering tools and resources for the journey of your life, and not "fixing" or "curing."
you are prepared to commit to your therapy, showing up weekly, carving out time for your therapeutic work during the week between sessions, taking some chances to become a bit more courageous and to "do your life" a bit differently, even if it's just one small change.
you are prepared to move at the soul's pace, which may feel slow at times.
with the guidance and support of a therapist, you can gather tools and resources to tolerate the discomfort and tension of tending your pain rather than trying to numb it away.
you are ready for some extraordinarily revelatory moments about your self, your life, and the world.
you are ready to embrace changes and the shadowy parts of your self that have been waiting to be known, forgiven, and loved.
you are willing to begin to accept what is rather than what you wish would be.
