Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Free yourself. You’re probably here because something isn't working in your life. Maybe you know what it is, maybe you don’t. Maybe things are going really well, but you feel like you’re standing outside and looking in at your life. Or maybe things aren’t going well, and you don’t know how to get your life on track. We develop ideas about who we are from the people and influences around us. If those reflections are negative, we can learn to distrust and even dislike ourselves. When that happens, we’re vulnerable to falling into the negative habits of self-doubt, fear, guilt, and sadness. When we base our responses on these habits, we lose sight of our best selves and our preferred ways of being and living. Forgive yourself. Love the part of you that has been hurt and disappointed. It means that you expect something better. Admire your perseverance. Celebrate the moments when you feel confident, joyful, and free. Notice when your greatness shines through—even for a moment. Learn how to make a habit of your virtues. Change can be good. Really.

Phillip Copitch, PhD

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist 
Redding, CA 96001

Approximately half of Dr. Copitch's practice involves children and families. The other half is devoted to individual therapy. And, as Dr. Copitch often jokes, "the third half of my work is devoted to school consultations, business consultations, and corporate trainings."
