"Insight, encouragement, and challenge to grow, mixed with a healthy dose of humor makes for great success in the Baking Oven of life! Learning comes from multiple sources, such as life experience, books, others, and training. Learning without growing and maturing is not the definition of wisdom. What do you think? Want to grow wiser together, then call me. Making better decisions in life, helps for greater happiness and joy. A trauma of your past controlling you today? Unresolved traumas can cause addiction and relationship issues. Learn how to take the control back, how to get your life back, and how to enjoy life again."

"The benefit of therapy is that one can gain self-understanding, as well as a better understanding of other people. When a person tends to view the world from a negative perspective, without being aware of the source of these negative views, a belief begins to grow that the world and the components of daily-life experiences are negative. The same can be said for events that provoke anxiety, as well as for individual experiences of trauma. Holding these types of thoughts without processing them tends to skew our views on reality and lead to errors in thinking, such as generalizations about how the world should be."
