_You are the hero of your own story._- J

Regardless of our current life situation or health, each day offers opportunities for serenity, peace, and even joy. But serious challenges can come up making this ideal difficult to achieve.


Sometimes, and especially during times of change, serious illness, or addiction, we need to mourn the loss of what we once had and accept reality exactly as it is now. Then, we can begin exploring new ways of successfully bringing healthy pleasure and enjoyment back into every day life.


In my work with hospice patients, the homeless, people facing serious addiction and health challenges, and those going through other difficult transition times, I have witnessed first hand how, regardless of external factors, people can cultivate a sense of serenity even in the midst of major external challenges.

With the right practical psychological tools in place, it's possible to bring a sense of enjoyment and creativity into the simple routines of daily life. It's often not easy, but it's possible.
