"How does your need for certainty play out? Does it force you to try to predict? Does it persuade you to declare things that you don't actually know? Perhaps the need for certainty is powerful enough to rob you of genuine moments with loved ones or with yourself. Research finds that people who take risks (those who step into the unknown) are happier than those who merely reach for reward or gratification. Why? Because healthy risk-taking has rewards sewn into the experience when we authentically try. It builds skills in self-advocacy, self-love and self-worth."

"The relationship between client and therapist is the most important factor in successful therapy. The process of therapy is part science and part art. The science of therapy provides us with data that tells us which therapeutic strategies work best for specific problems. For me, knowing the science is crucial; using it, however, is an art. The art of therapy starts with the cumulative life experiences of the therapist--this is crucial in finding a good therapist and should not be discounted. A therapist should also be kind, empathic, humorous, direct, open, and honest."
