As a therapist I believe that all individuals have the potential to flourish in their lives. A person who flourishes increases their happiness, well-being and purpose in life. In order to flourish a person must understand and cultivate their strengths. Through the cultivation of ones strengths a person will be able to build and or deepen their interpersonal relationships, increase the amount of pleasure they experience, and contribute to society in a meaningful way.
