“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”
These words highlight my passion in helping my clients to discover their strengths and step forward to improve their overall mental health. Many individuals are unhappy because they do not accept circumstances or things they are unable to change (the past; what others think, feel, say, or do) or else have no control over (the weather, traffic, natural disasters, and lost time).
This leads to fear, pain, and despair. I believe that counseling can help you accept the parts of your life you are unable to change and focus on the parts you can change. This will help you reach your goals, overcome struggles, and empower you to become a better you.
