Change Happens Here and Now: Becoming Aware of New Choices in the Present Moment

By: Toby D. Howell, LCSW


Life is happening. It has always happened. It is expected to continue happening. The only place or time that it happens though is in the here and now, in the present moments as we are living it.

Change is a fundamental tenet of life. It is happening all the time. It is the one constant in life. The saying “The more things change, the more they stay the same” is a fallacy which only appears to be true. That’s because we humans get stuck with automatic behavioral patterns that can make it seem that way. And, we reinforce these patterns of stuckness the longer we stay on auto-pilot.


The art of experiential therapy uses awareness as a primary tool to bring life into the therapeutic encounter. It allows for change in automatic behavioral patterns by bringing awareness to them. This then results in the existence of choices and possibilities where before there were none.


Experiential therapy focuses on the life being lived and responded to in the present moment, which creates the conditions for change to happen. Are you ready to experience some things new in you? Contact me to start your therapy journey today.
