Personal Philosophy of Growth and Healing

We are not creatures of circumstance; we are creators of circumstance.
– Benjamin Disraeli

I believe that we are all born with an innate capacity for growth and healing but that it becomes obscured by the defensive barriers we build to protect ourselves from emotional wounding. Unfortunately, the walls we erect often block our capacity for enjoyment and creative change as well. We may come to believe that we are victims of circumstance and have no choice over what happens to us. It is my life’s work to provide a safe and accepting environment where together we can identify existing strengths and use them creatively to transform current misperceptions and negative beliefs into stepping stones to positive change and personal empowerment.
