For as long as you can remember,
you've felt a bit 'different.'

A walking contradiction? More than once you've been described as someone who colors-outside-the-lines and thinks-outside-the-box. 

And, while your imaginative, analytical mind is in many ways a huge gift the uncomfortable truth is:


Being 'unique' can be unimaginably lonely

The idea of fitting in seems absurd, but at the same time belonging is both distant and cozy. It's undeniable that part of you wants not just acceptance, but celebration, connection, community. 

Yet, for as long as you can remember you've been doing this: 

Trying to hold it all together on your own.  

Here is a space for questioning.

Questions brought you here: a quest (or scream into the void) for clarity, a solution. You break things down, deconstruct them. Trying your damnedest to critical-think your way through this; you've thought and thought and thought about it. To your frustration you haven't solved the mystery of clear authenticity and human connection.

At Divergent Path Wellness, questions are welcome. Questions about therapy. Questions about identity. Questions about the world at large and the impact it has on you. Oppressive systems at large? Let's question it.

It makes sense to be skeptical. Questioning: Can this be a space where I can show up fully? Will a therapist meet my experience human-to-human with real understanding? Will they appreciate the very wonderment (that feels a lot right now like loneliness) that makes me, me? Can this help? Is it worth it?

Along with, and aided by, exploring your questions we will do the work: the stuff of growth and healing, to create a life that works for you.

The question for you is: How much longer do you wait to prioritize you?
