"It is in the space between the inner and outer world, which is also the space between people – the transitional space – that intimate relationships and creativity occur.”

— D. W. Winnicott

People who feel stuck and are unable to resolve difficult problems may benefit from psychotherapy. The obstacles to our success and happiness in life are usually found in the things that are outside of our awareness and that we, therefore, cannot possibly tackle by ourselves. Understanding what previously could not be known provides opportunities for newfound freedom and options for moving forward.
