“We can’t solve problems using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” – Albert Einstein 

 

Sometimes life throws us curveballs that we don’t know how to deal with. Coping strategies we’ve come to depend on don’t work and we need to try something different. Changing the way we think about and approach problems can turn obstacles into opportunities to grow in ways we never considered. Together we will unpack issues to understand what is at the core of them and work collaboratively to understand the problem, and consider alternative approaches, perspectives, and solutions to help live the abundant life you were meant to live.
