Quotes & Such

I have a practice of studying broadly, including reading/listening to those I might not fully agree with. I find this helpful, both in understanding myself and my own views, as well as understanding other perspectives. Thus, I may post content (quotes, podcasts, videos, etc.) which I might not wholly agree with, but which I believe to be worth engaging (even if you find yourself holding a different perspective than a given speaker/writer). Trust your own intuition—I intend this section to be a place of engagement, not as something to be blindly followed.

Additionally, much like with books, some content is less (or more) appropriate for certain stages of growth, certain struggles, etc. If you are a Transitions client I invite you to ask me any questions you have regarding particular content during your next counseling session.

For some of my own writing and videos about life, wellness, counseling, etc. check out the Transitions Blog.
