Finding the therapist that gets you probably feels like another exhausting task. You’ve been anxious and angry for way too long. You thought you were doing "all the right things" and don't understand why you're still feeling this way. There are days you think you have it together but most of the time you know you don't. You put on a smile for everyone but you're really unhappy inside and feel completely disconnected. You're tired of feeling miserable, exhausted and confused. You're at a complete loss of what to do anymore. You know this isn't you. You're ready to make a change.
