“I have not failed. I have just found 10,000 things that do not work.”
Our psychodynamic process is cognitive and emotive, using developing brain research to grasp how our minds strive to overcome adversities and challenges to shepherd us from one stage of our lives to the next. In that effort, we come to understand how we all hold elements of our histories stored as a screen through which we view our present day lives, sometimes providing wisdom, but sometimes also contaminating our judgments and plans. When we know which is wisdom and which is defensive, we can take steps to be more proactive, passionate, and engaging in our lives, versus being reactive and fearful.
