Life can be as messy and complicated as it can beautiful and joyous. When we encounter stumbling blocks along our paths as individuals or within our families, it is important to enlist the support of the people or activities that help us feel grounded. Sometimes, our tried and true coping skills or best-made plans fall short of creating the change we desire, or we experience uncomfortable emotions, interpersonal struggles and internal conflict. These moments of vulnerability can be our greatest teachers. When we feel stuck and unsure of what to try next, seeking professional support can help us to step above the fog to connect with our resiliency, develop deeper trust in ourselves, and ultimately, thrive.
