Why start therapy?
Perhaps you are feeling stuck, trapped, broken, or confused by your own thoughts and feelings. Maybe there are behaviors you have been trying to stop for a while, but just can't. Perhaps you are tired of feeling sad, alone, ashamed, unsafe, afraid, or doubtful. Or you might be feeling anxious and panicky, losing your temper more often than usual.
Maybe there are parts of yourself that you don't understand, can't seem to accept, or even hate. Perhaps you feel that no matter what you do, nothing will ever be good enough for yourself or for others. You might feel that something is missing in your life, or has been lost in your relationships. Or maybe you are generally satisfied and happy, but want to live a more fulfilling, connected, and meaningful life.
There are as many reasons to start therapy as there are people seeking help. Which one is yours?.

He concludes that “the opposite of addiction is not sobriety. […]
