Additional Info:
Therapy is a journey toward self discovery, self realization, growth and change. Many people find themselves struggling with issues such as low self-esteem, anxiety, fear and depression. They create inaccurate beliefs about themselves based on false and negative thoughts. The secret to building positive self-esteem is to learn to see the whole you not just your mistakes, failures or imperfections. "To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance" Oscar Wilde
