Personal growth through therapy often requires a serious investment of time, money, and energy. Therapy isn’t a perfect process but it is the best one I know of to help people who are bothered by a discrepancy between what is and what could be. Sometimes therapy begins when a person feels excited and motivated to do something about that discrepancy, and sometimes it begins when all when all hope is lost and there is nowhere else to turn. People enter this powerful process frustrated, beat up, and hopeless. With lots of help, they face fears, make discoveries, and learn new skills. They emerge healthier and happier than they ever could have imagined.
