She understands that life can be stressful sometimes, and taking the first step to enter into a therapeutic relationship can be a difficult one. Once the first step is taken, the next steps are much easier and changes begin to occur. People become unstuck, old habits and bad patterns are broken, and life becomes more meaningful and more fulfilling with less conflict and more peace.
