"Life is all about finding that balance between what we can control and what we can't. Faith can play a large roll in this. I am a life-long Catholic in my second year of deaconate training. However, we only discuss faith if you want to. I have helped many people with little or no faith. I would be happy to listen to you and help you find that balance. Depression is often due to unresolved past issues encroaching in the present, while anxiety draws future events into the here and now. Both decrease enjoyment of the moment, the place where we live our lives."
