I was no stranger to therapy when I came to Goodman JFS for help. I was in the middle of a situational life crisis, a health scare, and what looked to be the start of a long legal divorce battle. I did not know if I was going to be able to withstand this tsunami I was facing. The threat of being caught in the wave and drowning, amidst its pressure seemed inevitable, yet months later here I am.

Therapy does not remove the tsunami, but it does provide me with the tools to make my own scuba gear. The wetsuit to keep me protected from the elements, the oxygen tank to breathe underwater and a face mask to see the world around and catch a glimpse of beauty or spark joy in my life. I was unable to see anything but the tsunami before me and now I’m able to catch glimpses into the horizon, I didn’t think I was ever going to see again.
