Every therapist feels stuck at some point. Dr. Peebles offers ways of working with patients that clear openings for growth inside those stuck-places.

When Psychotherapy Feels Stuck integrates wisdom from multiple theoretical schools. It balances explicit, systematized frameworks for thinking with sensory-based metaphors. Chapters interweave empirical research with clinical vignettes to describe the power of language choices, tolerating not-knowing, risking relationship, and creating meaning.

Therapists from all theoretical backgrounds and experience levels will find something unexpected here that sparks hope and a fresh take when feeling stuck.
