Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
There Is Nothing Wrong With You, Life Is Just Harder Than You Ever Expected. Getting lost in your circumstances is not a disease. However, sometimes without realizing it, you blindly do the same old thing over and over and expect a different result every time. That is, until you just can't take it anymore. Then how you "really feel" becomes stronger than how you"should feel." This can feel very uncomfortable, however, it is the beginning of finding yourself again in all the situations in your life. This therapy helps you, step by step, grow and learn something new to face what life has brought. Feel the freshness of new possiblities from how you really feel and how you really want to live your life.
