When we think about all the pain and suffering we endure during our lifetime, how much of it is necessary, and how much of it is avoidable? It is my belief that most individuals have the power to drastically change their own circumstances; yet we may falter by falling victim to our old routines and habits. The therapeutic journey is about questioning these automatic responses, while empowering you to take the steps needed to create long-lasting change. “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” - Viktor Frankl
