As we approach the end of another year, it's a natural time for reflection—a moment to pause, look back, and ponder the paths we've traveled. This end-of-year reflection is particularly significant when it comes to our mental health journeys. Whether you’ve just started considering mental health therapy or are well into your journey, this time of year offers a unique opportunity to assess our growth, challenges, and the lessons we've learned along the way.
