The Magic Wand

Have you ever wished you could find a therapist who has a magic wand that, with one wave, could rid you of all your problems? Most people want the easy way, a soft landing, and a quick fix to life’s difficulties. I know this because there have been times in my life when I wanted just that, but experience has taught me that the easy way was not usually an option.

You may be in a relationship that is painful and unsatisfying, you may not like your job, you may be suffering through the loss of a loved one or a goal/dream you hoped to achieve, you may have health problems that are affecting your quality of life, you may have suffered abuse and trauma at the hands of someone in your life, you may be in a situation at work or at home or at school that is causing you great stress and turmoil. These are all part of the human experience that we each face at different times/stages of our lives. You may have tried to make your difficulties less upsetting by depending upon your own resources and determination or through the help of a family member or friend, but you have come to the realization that your problem is too much for you. You are ready to ask for help. Good for you! You are right on time!
