It is normal to need support during challenging times, and we hope to offer that. The goal of therapy is to feel empowered through learning about yourself, how to cope through personal challenges, and feel confident that you can cope through future hardships independently with the knowledge you have acquired. In Dialectical Behavior Therapy, the focus is balancing acceptance and change.
“Acceptance can transform, but if you accept in order to transform, it is not acceptance. It is like loving; Love seeks no reward, but when given freely, comes back a hundredfold. He who loses his life, finds it. He who accepts, changes.” –Marsha Linehan, creator of Dialectical Behavior Therapy
