Taking the time to slow down and look for a therapist is not always an easy task. So for taking that first step, we applaud you and the courage that lays behind the desire to ask for help. It takes a village to become who we are meant to be, but ultimately, the change starts with you.
Therapy is great when you are struggling with anxiety or depression, have unresolved relational issues, past trauma that has begun affecting your normal routine, or an intimate relationship that is going through a difficult time. It also helps when you need to work through family problems with parenting, extended family or grief and loss.
These are all a part of being human and being in relationship, and it’s OK to ask for help in the midst of them. We would love to come alongside you in whatever season of life you are in. Our goal at Kineo is not to see through you, but to see you through some of life’s more difficult seasons.
