There is a lot of power in the decision to come to therapy. So much of our culture emphasizes our individuality and our ability to handle things on our own, when the truth is that we are inherently relational beings. We need relationships in order to learn about ourselves and, ultimately, to change and grow. Realizing that one needs help to sort things out is a sign of strength and, whether you are struggling with a particular issue or the challenge of being human in general, the therapeutic relationship is a powerful tool in the process of self-discovery, change, and healing.
