If you're looking for Dr. Cathryn Harris, she's still alive and still married to Dr. Mitchell Harris, but she has started a practice in CANADA!  Yes, Canada, to be closer to extended family.  Dr. Mitchell will be joining her next year, but he's "holding down the fort" in California in the transition.  Please pray for us in this big transition.  Meanwhile, Dr. Lynn Stenske has taken over IPPC and will be available to meet your needs for help toward growth and change.  Dr.  Cathryn did her best to give the community a clinician with similar background and training.  Just like Dr. Cathryn, Dr. Lynn will be able to provide individual, couples, family, and child and adolescent therapy for a wide range of problems, as well as EMDR therapy for trauma.  Dr. Cathryn would like to express her thankfulness to the Chino community for all her years here.  She is already missing her clients, but has peace that she has left them with good resources to continue their journeys.

Are You Happy?

By Dr. Mitchell.  

Successful psychotherapy requires only a competent therapist and a motivated client. One of the major benefits of successful therapy is increased happiness.

Happiness is desirable in its own right.  But here are some other benefits of happiness you may not know:

-According to actual studies happy people live, on average, 7 1/2 years longer than unhappy people.  And that’s on average.  You may get much more than that.

-Happy people work much better with others.

-Happy people fix problems instead of complain about them.

-Happy people have more energy.

-Happy people are more optimistic.

-Happy people are more motivated.

-Happy people are sick less often.

-Happy people learn faster.  They are, in effect, smarter.

-Happy people worry less about making mistakes and therefore make fewer mistakes.

-Happy people make better decisions.

-Happy people are more attractive to others.  Remember, you don’t attract what you want, you attract what you are.
