"No matter how much we try, life does not always go according to our “grand plan”. This is not always a bad thing! There are many things that we learn through the valleys of life that we would never be able to grasp an understanding of otherwise! You do not need to face life’s challenges alone! Life constantly gives us opportunities to become better and more fulfilled people. The difference between where you are and where you want to be is the obstacle in front of you and your determination to overcome it."

"In my years as a clinician one thing has always remained a constant, and that is difficulty with transitions and change, which life abundantly throws at us. Regardless of the situation, change or transition is often the cause of unsettling feelings that lead one to engage with a therapist. That being said, many people are more comfortable and able to successfully maneuver adjustments in their daily routine, in their family structure, home life, work, relationships, etc. Others however, may struggle with developing or utilizing ways of coping with such change.

Cognitive therapy helps you do this. I also explore your past and help you understand how it impacts on you in the "here and now". But, I do not help you use the past in order to blame others or make excuses.
