I perceive mental wellness as the ability to remain open, flexible, and objective so that you can productively adapt to life's changing necessities. At times, our ability to be open and flexible is challenged due to the family system in which we grew up in, undeveloped self-identity, low self esteem, an unsupportive unstructured life environment, abuse, trauma, maladaptive coping skills, poor emotional control and expression, or false expectations. During such times, it might be helpful to seek the assistance of a trained therapist who can help you objectively decipher how you got to where you are, why you feel overwhelmed or stuck, and how to productively overcome challenges, and resolve conflicts in order to approach mental wellness.
In times of uncertainty, stress, or life changes it is often helpful to have an independent outsider listen -- listen to your thoughts and your feelings without any expectations, preconceived opinions, or personal points of view. Someone who focuses completely on you That's counseling.
Through genuine listening, a psychologist begins to recognize the psychological strengths you are using every day. While you may see no connection between different relationships or different situations, a trained psychologist can. A psychologist then helps you apply your psychological strengths to resolve life's uncertainties and stress, as well as to adapt to life changes.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
While at first blush, psychotherapy is oftentimes perceived as fearful or daunting. Psychotherapy is an exploration of your thought, emotions, and behavior. You cannot love someone if you do not know who they are. I believe that as people become more accepting of themselves, they are more capable of finding happiness and contentment in their lives. Through psychotherapy you will clarify your self-identity, enhance your self-worth, as well as acquire adaptive coping skills.
