I have learned the most important lessons in life from my wife and
--patience, acceptance, awareness, a sense of awe in the everyday, self-discipline, balance, the ability to focus, setting priorities, kindness, perseverance, respect, living with and through grief, and the value of humor.
All change involves loss. All loss involves change. Even those changes we choose, can be challenging and maybe painful. Yet in nearly all situations, we have the power to choose how we respond. “Every choice we make takes us closer to or further from where we want to be.” Whether the choice has to do with some exciting possibility or tragedy and trauma from illness, death, assault or a failing relationship, it’s all about our choices. Helping people decide where they want to be, and evaluating whether their choices take them closer to or further from that destination, is what my practice is about.
