Take the Mystery Out of Your History

Life is full of complications, yet the most stubborn problems that we face are the ones that we generate ourselves. We may engage in self-sabotaging behaviors or search for answers in others. Such choices can only lead us to disappointment.

Therapy works best when you have two things:  the hunger for a better life and an experienced guide. Along the way, you may feel lost or uncertain. At such times, it’s the therapist role to support, challenge and inspire you to make new choices.

Self-mastery takes practice but it’s well worth it. Life is more enjoyable, gratifying and fun when you’re in the driver’s seat. For me, that’s what the journey of therapy is all about. – Sean Grover
