Break Old Habits
So much of our lives are lived out of habit, even when those habits do not necessarily serve our best interest. Through examining our automatic thoughts, feelings, and reactions in a compassionate, yet more conscious light, we learn we actually have choices.
We begin to see gaps and junctures between our thoughts, feelings and reactions. This allows us to see where we usually opt for the same patterns and habits, and gives room for us to challenge those.
When we experiment with new choices, options we never knew we had, we start to see different results. We see our lives take a turn in a direction that somehow carries us to place that feels more real, free, and yes happy.
I believe happiness and joy are natural states to be discovered as we walk this earth. I believe it is this pursuit that is our deepest drive and motivation and yet so many of us find ourselves lost and deeply unsatisfied.
Through the process and journey of therapy, you will be able to access a realm of joy and happiness you may not have thought possible. This is a deep joy in both the small and mundane as well as the magnificent and lofty. This is the joy of a life fully experienced, through a more healed and wider lens.
