written in Chinese, the word "crisis" is composed of
two characters. One represents danger and the other represents
opportunity”. - John F. Kennedy
Every individual has strengths. During difficult times in life,
these strengths are challenged and tested, often to the point
that it feels like that there is no hope for change or
understanding by friends and family. It is a terribly lonely
place to be in. If you are in such a situation, pick up a phone
and call for help. It is one of your “strength moments”.
I am trained in several specific treatments for depression,
anxiety and trauma and, additionally, I am pursuing advanced
training in the field, but one thing I learned for sure is that
there is no single treatment for all situations. It is art of
the therapist’s perspective as to when and how to apply the
appropriate guidance within the course of treatment.
