"Your experiences and perceptions are real because they're yours. When you feel a certain way, it is significant, even if others may suggest that what's on your mind is "really not that big of a deal." If your instinct is telling you something doesn't feel right, you deserve a chance to explore that. I want to explore those ideas with you, and provide a space where you feel comfortable talking about whatever you want in a safe and judgment-free zone."
