Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Leonard Pikaard "Life can be full of wonderful joys and experiences that bring about happiness. However, life can also be filled with expected or unexpected turns and bumps, which promote physical, mental, and spiritual suffering. Whether it's a pleasant or sad event, every experience we have in life triggers us to feel an emotion: emotions motivate us to take all types of different actions; some of which are healthy, and some of which may have a negative impact on our lives. The key is learning to become mindful of our emotions and how they drive us to behave: this may be easier said than done. Talking to a therapist like Leonard can help one become mindful and understand why they are feeling certain emotions, as well as what actions they can take to help release them from the bondage of that emotion. To be successful, one must become comfortable carrying out uncomfortable tasks. "
