"Irvin Yalom, in his book The gift of therapy, writes “Psychotherapy is not a substitute for life but a dress rehearsal for life. In other words, though psychotherapy requires a close relationship, the relationship is not an end - it is a means to an end.” The main challenge of counseling is for you and me to create a relationship of mutual trust and openness on a deep level so that you can address whatever it is that is hindering a fuller experience of life. Whether it is depression, anxiety, traumatic memories, or relationship frustrations, these difficulties need not be dead ends but can be doorways to a better life. "
