"Sometimes we find ourselves at a crossroads, holding success, resilience and triumph in the one hand and pain from past and present experiences in the other. Sometimes the past will not rest and we find ourselves stuck in the same patterns, of thinking, feeling and behaving. The crossroads and crises of life afford us the chance to pause, gain insights and figure out where and how we need to change direction. We are not responsible for everything that happens to us AND we are responsible for making meaning from the life we are living. How we do this depends on who we believe ourselves to be . We believe in healing as an opportunity."

"Sigmund Freud called psychotherapy "The Talking Cure." Perhaps it's better understood as the "Listening Cure" because really feeling understood is fundamental to emotional healing and growth. Whether it is understanding yourself, your partner, or your child, feeling deeply listened to, feeling deeply understood, is a transformative experience. Sometimes, it's about dealing with past experiences that are holding you back. Sometimes, it's learning new ways to be and understand yourself in the present. Most importantly, it is the person you want to become that directs the work we will do. "
