I tell each of my patients that my goal is to work myself out of a job.  I want to give you the tools you can take with you so you no longer need me. I revel in the moment when we look back at where you were a month, 6 months or a year ago and acknowledge that what you’re doing now is so different from how you would have handled the same situation back then. Look how far you have come!
