new beginnings2018 has come to a close.  We are fast approaching the end of the second decade of the new millennium.  Our fears regarding Y2K have paled against the concerns that we now face as individuals and as a nation. We have witnessed behaviors and rhetoric in our country that defy good judgment, right reason and even a hint of ethics! The list seems endless and daunting.

At this time of the year introspection and reflection once again become part of our national consciousness. The “could have” and “should have” ruminations temporarily have been put to rest.   The hope is that our latest set of resolutions will bring us closer to what is true to us, our inherent values and our ability to bring balance into our lives and hopefully our country.  Does this sound familiar?

It is noteworthy that this is not very different from what goes on in most of our minds at the beginning of each New Year.  Why have we so often been here and said this?  Why are we stuck in the same place once again despite our own best efforts?
What does it take to make a difference in your relationships, your family, your problem-solving ability or your manner of processing stress?

You may ponder many questions in the quiet moments of your life. Does the answer lie in bibliotherapy?  Do you need a good conversation with a trusted friend?

While either option might be helpful, the answers are part of a process that lies within you and are reflected in your manner of perceiving life situations and processing stress. Your particular emotional response patterns and their effects on your bio-chemistry are significant factors in realizing your resolutions for the New Year.

Do you want to be the agent of change in your life? Do you want to increase the likelihood of future resolutions building on your intrinsic growth and development? If your answer is YES to these questions call Dr. Maryann Schaefer to discuss your concerns during a complimentary consultation.
