What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

Sometimes people ask me how I can listen to people's problems every day. I always tell them, I don't hear negatives as much as I hear about opportunity and possibilities!

There is always an opportunity for improvement. When clients can start to use their minds and strengths in more productive ways, things start to shift and change.

As quoted by Carl Jung - "Behind our wounds lie our greatest gifts".

It is an honor to work with people in the work of self development and to see the "real self emerge" from within.
