"What you resist, persists....This is one of life's biggest lessons: learning how to coexist with and manage emotions rather than fight or run away from them. Any attempt at avoiding the less desirable emotions via alcohol, drugs, food, or sex will be met with more problems (addiction). So what if you did the opposite? What if you allowed yourself to feel, to fully sit with the pain and discomfort? What might happen? A new beginning. It would mean moving forward with an understanding that all emotions are fleeting, and that you've finally learned to embrace what is."

"As a clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst I strongly believe each person has the potential to overcome inner conflict in order to experience contentment and happiness. However, people often are unable to overcome negative emotions in their lives and relationships because they don't truly understand themselves. Childhood experiences and our family background are powerful influences in shaping who we become as adults -- significantly influencing our career, friendship, and romantic relationship choices. Psychotherapy can provide the key to understanding and ultimately overcoming the obstacles to achieve a fulfilling life whether alone or with a significant other."
