"I believe that people have it within them to make choices and changes to make themselves happier. I believe that people deserve respect and caring support as they talk about the things making them unhappy and try to figure out how to help themselves. Most often, people seek therapy because the things they are doing to try to solve their problem are not working. Through examining the interaction between thoughts, feeling and behaviors, together we can problem-solve to find more effective solutions that will improve your quality of life." – Irina Kerzhnerman, Ph.D.
