From time to time, we all face challenges that can be overwhelming. Sometimes these challenges are situational, but they can also be the result of our lived experience(s) over time. Often they manifest as anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, and self harm. These manifestations can lead to further challenges such as job loss, family conflict, isolation, and addiction. Although we may flounder or experience failure, we can develop the strategies needed to live a flourishing life. Integrative therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Positive Psychotherapy, and Solution Focused Therapy teach us how to live well. In order to live a flourishing life, it is important to recognize our strengths and identify our assets. Too much time spent focusing on personal deficits can impede progress. Instead, by recognizing and shifting away from negative thoughts, feelings and behaviors, we can cultivate positive emotions, healthy relationships and a sense of purpose. I understand what it feels like to experience loss. I know how hard it is to overcome anger and fear. I recognize that it takes commitment, effort, and courage to explore the past, embrace the present, and imagine the future. However, by interrupting the status quo, you will create opportunities to develop ways of being that will inspire new possibilities.
