"I believe that we live in challenging times. Many people find it difficult to feel confident and self assured, have peaceful, fulfilling relationships, navigate the demands of finances, family, work and home, and also focus on nourishing self care. These challenges are interconnected. They are related to how we have developed our sense of self in the context of family expectations and experiences, societal demands, cultural assumptions, and media influence. It is necessary for all of us to learn how to live our best lives in these particular circumstances. You are not alone."

"There is a lot of pressure in today’s world to feel good, to handle our troubles on our own. We are led to believe that the sign of a healthy life is the absence of struggle, that we are weak if we reach out for help. But, it is rare, if even possible, to find a person who does not struggle, at least a little. If struggle is a part of life, then I believe we must also contain the potential to struggle well. To struggle takes strength and courage. If you are reading this, you have already made your first step towards discovering your potential. "
