You are the most important person you will ever meet. Why not be on good terms with yourself? I view therapy as a relationship between two people devoted to facing the deepest truths of our lives so we can be healed. I believe that coming to know ourselves and understanding why we suffer leads to genuine change, a return to health, and gives birth to a more authentic life. In therapy, we discover that we heal through relating, because the wounds that occurred in relationships must be healed in a relationship, a relationship where the therapist doesn’t talk at us, but with us. None of us are wizards with all the answers. Both patient and therapist are always learning to live with and engage the questions of life. But we need a partner to help us sit, bear, and feel. For what was unbearable when alone, becomes bearable when shared.
