To Be

(exist; be present)

The truth is: Belonging starts with self-acceptance. Your level of belonging, in fact, can never be greater than your level of self-acceptance, because believing that you're enough is what gives you the courage to be authentic, vulnerable and imperfect.

— Brené Brown

It is my belief that healing occurs in safe relationships where individuals experience validation, respect, compassion, encouragement, honesty, and grace. As a result of successful psychotherapy, you mature into an adult who has grieved your losses and has gained confidence in the knowledge that you can handle what life may bring.

You also learn to accept suffering as an inevitable part of life rather than something to be avoided. You are able to let go of unhealthy coping behaviors and fully accept all of yourself.
