Are you constantly running on empty? Are you overloaded with work and feeling under-appreciated or like you don't matter? Are bills piling up, the kids are struggling, or does life seems meaningless? Have you hit a wall and don't know where to go from here?
Being stressed out or anxiety ridden can leave you feeling like your constantly running and not really getting anywhere. Similarly, when depression hits it can leave you dragging, causing unneeded stress to pile up in your life.
One of the best ways to get out of this type of downward spiral is to find a good listener and adviser. Psycotherapy is an ideal way to gain both of these and to find hope in life once again. Even Kent has benefited from psychotherapy and understands how it can help you move forward when it feels like the running will never end.
Grief could come from any type of loss not just death but also the end of relationships, jobs, and dreams that you once held dear.

In addition to helping his patients, Kent is also well familiar with how grief affects a person as he has personally lost loved ones that were near to his heart.
