"I believe that all people were born with positive potential. Unfortunately, due to all kinds of hurt that happens in life, we unconsciously build layers of protection onto our inner Self, blocking our ability to see things clearly, and limit our capacity to respond to daily life in a healthy and constructive way. I believe that your true Self knows what the loving and meaningful life path is for yourself.

"We sometimes live on "autopilot" in life, and have limited awareness of what we are feeling or experiencing, until thoughts, feelings, and experiences trigger intense suffering (e.g. depressed mood, anxiety, self-esteem or relationship problems). In an attempt to help ourselves feel better, we can then develop coping strategies, behaviours, or symptoms that further complicate our lives and drain us of precious energy and joy . However, I believe that just as acorns want to become oak trees, humans want to grow and thrive, and psychotherapy can activate this tendency. "
