I believe life experiences are the greatest teacher.

I believe life experiences are the greatest teacher. We go through many life challenges, difficulties, heartaches, but we should never forget the smiles, laughter, joy that come before or after those challenges. I am more a half glass full kind of person but I am pragmatic. I believe that the hard times can be really hard and if we need to cry, we should cry, be angry, be hurt, allow all the emotions to occur and feel them. The trick is to come out of those emotions with a new perspective so that we can grow and find our true self.

I see therapy as food for the soul. It is nourishment that one receives by having the opportunity to open themselves and hear their own thoughts, words out loud so they can be heard, validated, understood. Therapy does not have to be complicated. It is a building block to strengthen our core and feel confident in our abilities to face the challenges.
