It is natural to think about psychology and counseling as healing the sick, solving problems, or learning to cope when we're struggling. This is a good start. There are many proven techniques that can ease suffering in a person's life.
However, counseling is not always about solving problems. We are all a puzzle, and putting that puzzle together can take a lifetime. But unlike a jigsaw puzzle that comes in a box, we are not given the complete picture to guide us, and revealing the meaning of each of the pieces can seem frustrating and confusing at times. It's an exciting journey of discovery that is sometimes helped by a neutral guide.
That's where I come in. Let me be your guide.
