Be the Change You Wish To See In The World
This quote by Ghandi is one I live by and one I often referenced during the process of purchasing Susan Cohn and Associates. I think back over the years wondering about the changes I have made (big and small) and the footprints I am leaving along the way. I know that this practice will provide positive change for children and their families, give hope, and hopefully inspire all who visit our site or practice.
Recently I received a paperweight as a gift that reads “Things are difficult before they are made easy.” It is often that I see stressed, worried, and overwhelmed parents upon arriving for their child’s first visit. I let them know that things will be difficult to start, but it will get easier with their continued care, support, encouragement, unconditional love and their commitment to providing their child with the intervention they need. There is no better feeling as a therapist than to write a treatment plan and watch the goals and objectives be met one-by-one. It is wonderful to observe the confidence that ensues in the child and see the joy parents have whether they are now able to communicate with their child tantrum-free, get a hug and simple eye gaze full of emotion, or have their child follow simple instructions. Any and all progress is celebrated.
