Every person holds unique experiences, stories, and gifts. Due to trauma or other concerns, our experiences can turn into intolerable burdens. When this occurs, our thoughts can become negative, relaying disheartening messages to us. Overwhelmed, our minds and bodies become depressed, anxious, or hurt. Imagine, however, that our suffering carries helpful and meaningful messages. Through therapy that seeks to support and honor our life experiences, we can learn to express, befriend, and transform our uncomfortable symptoms.
In order to change what is, we need to give speech to what has been, to imagine what might be.
~ Adrienne Rich
Woods Creek Psychological Group benefits from the experience of four licensed clinical psychologists: Susan B. Day, Ph.D., Sharon Armstrong, Ph.D., Terry Garcia, Ph.D., and Tara Ingram, Ph.D. In addition, the compassionate and skillful clinical team in our internship program greatly enhances the services we are able to provide to the community. Each practitioner brings expertise and care to their work, creating environments to explore and develop the breadth of human experience.
It may be that when we no longer know what to do,
we have come to our real work,
and that when we no longer know which way to go,
we have begun our real journey.
The mind that is not baffled is not employed.
The impeded stream is the one that sings.
