"Creating change is difficult and takes effort. A person cannot be happy and content with their relationships with others, without first being happy and content with themselves. By looking at yourself, where you have been, where you are now and how you use what you have been given, whether environmental or biological, you can understand the changes in your behavior that are necessary to function in this world at an optimal level. A level where you feel good about yourself and enjoy healthy, fulfilling relationships."

"It's so important to prioritize emotional and mental health in life and relationships. When you give yourself and your family this gift, you discover that life does not go “back to normal”. Instead, you propel yourself into a new way of looking at things. The problem you are facing becomes a building block, an asset rather than a burden, and a piece of the puzzle in the wiser version of yourself that you are becoming."

Our work in therapy is to understand these patterns and learn how to change them.
