The trouble with living

We were given the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well. - Voltaire

Whatever your belief on how or why, or who or what got you here, you’re here now...  And even as you were not responsible for what happened to you in your early life, you now, hold the greatest responsibility for your healing and your well being In the present.

Few of us live the lives that look the way we planned, even fewer live lives that feel the way we imagined.  And while we learn a lot about a lot that we never EVER use again outside of school; very few of us have been taught about relating to ourselves and others in a way that actually works for us.  And that can leave us feeling distanced from our own lives.

I used to have business cards that said, “therapy is for the brave“.  New clients thought is was cute.  Established clients thought it was understated.  

To have the courage to examine your own life, to acknowledge your fears and your desires, to begin to live with bravery and in freedom and acceptance for who you are, feels not only real, but really present and alive.

I look forward to working with you.
