What values do you want to promote at Family Psychology of South Bend and in the community?

Although I am certain these are already strongly valued at FPSB, I hope to continue to promote non-judgement and curiosity about ourselves and others both here and in the community at large. I believe we treat others the way that we treat ourselves, and one of the best foundations we can lay for our mental health is to not judge ourselves for our unwanted or unhealthy thoughts or behaviors but instead become curious about how they are both helping and hurting us. The human experience is a wild, beautiful and confusing thing and we are all trying our best with what we have. Being judgmental, to ourselves or others, is a waste of our precious and limited time and energy, and the antidote for judgement is curiosity. Asking questions to understand, being unassuming, looking for and focusing on the strengths in ourselves and others is a much more helpful and enjoyable way to live.
