Living a value-centered life

Often, life experiences lead us to believe that we are incapable, flawed, or unworthy. While we cannot change what has happened in the past, I believe we can discover new meaning from our experiences. We can direct our path forward, utilizing our strengths, embracing who we want to be, and living a fulfilling life that reflects our values. I believe this is what brings a sense of contentment and happiness in life. Whether depression has stolen your motivation, anxiety has kept you frozen, or trauma has made it difficult to trust, problems can feel overwhelming. They can convince you that you are stuck, and that change is impossible. But it is vital to remember what Michael White, co-founder of Narrative Therapy, said.

YOU are not the problem. The PROBLEM is the problem.

Additionally, I believe that you have the solution inside of you. We just need to do the work of uncovering it.
