He who has a why to live can bear almost any how.  

                                                                                                                             -Friedrich Nietzsche 

We all need a “why”—focal points in our lives that make Life bearable, meaningful, and, if we are lucky, a wondrous adventure.  

The “what’s” of our lives—work, relationships, activities, etc.—are vital to who we are, but our values—our innermost convictions about what is essential to a life well-lived—is why we are.  Our values make up our most essential “why.”

At Focal Point Art Therapy + Counseling, I partner with you to help you discover or live closer to your “why’s,” even in the midst of painful feelings, self-defeating thoughts, and difficult experiences.  While you gain perspectives and skills to cope better with your challenges, you will learn how to use your values as your compass in every moment.  Armed with this internal north star you can “bear almost any how” and live your best life.
