LIFE IS HARD

Sometimes it is difficult to find our way through a life transition, a breakup, an unhappy relationship, an unsatisfactory job, the past, or our own minds.

We can feel stuck and experience depressed mood, anxiety, and feel lost. We can find ourselves in an unhappy holding pattern unable to find our way.
