Growth and relationship compatability occur by discovering hidden resources, feelings, dreams and talents and by learning new skills. In fact, we are changing all the time and we believe therapy can accelerate the change process.Change occurs because the old solutions aren't working anymore. Because we are older, more mature, and want to move on. Because it occurs to us that new clothes, or an expensive vacation, or a drink, or a different lover doesn't really change anything. Because we have that nagging fear that our children may not fulfill their potential, or that we are repeating old, unwanted patterns in our relationships. Because we want more out of life and to feel better than we do now. Growth occurs when we feel truly respected, listened to and understood. When we feel like what we are thinking, doing, feeling, and talking about will not be condemned. Sometimes, when we feel there is no hope, we also believe in our hearts there must be hope somewhere. When we have that gut sense that now is the time to do something, and we don't have to do it alone.
