""Sometimes the hardest thing to do is take care of ourselves. That is ultimately what you have decided to do if you seek counseling services from a mental health professional. After more than 20 years as a psychologist I still see people struggle to accept that this is a healthy choice. Taking the time to pause and reflect and grow emotionally costs time, money and sometimes a bit of your "usual routine." But when you are truly ready to invest in yourself you will see that you are worth the investment. Your life is worth living to the fullest!""
