You've tried to ignore or fix the problem but it hasn't gone away. You are a caregiver, therapist, or in a role dedicated to helping others and struggling with workplace stress or burnout. You are naturally introverted or highly sensitive and wonder why people don't just "get you." You are processing what seems like a lot of emotions (anxiety, grief, changing moods, illness, sadness) or family problems (dysfunction, disconnection). Trauma, stress, and relationship issues affect us all. Being able to talk about what's going on can help you to build supports, focus your strengths, and find healthy and positive outlets.

You keep asking or telling yourself

  • Why do I keep solving my problems in the same way (that isn't working)?
  • Everybody is talking about self-care, but how do I start?
  • How come I find myself in the same types of relationships over and over?
  • Who can help me tell an important part of my story?
  • I think I know how to take care of myself, but how come I don't feel relaxed?
  • I think I might like to try making art to express myself, but I can't even draw a straight line!
  • How can I successfully adjust to this new change in my life?

The Bottom Line:

You want to be energized, not drained from your responsibilities. You want to understand yourself better. You want to set stronger personal boundaries or get to the root of your emotions and problems. You want to talk about or make art to share your story.  You want to feel calm and in control of life again.
