"I believe we are all doing the best we can; lifelong relationships, systemic influences, and personal experiences create patterns, beliefs, and vulnerabilities that are ingrained into our senses of "Self" and overall ways of being. We all have our own narratives - where we come from, how we got here, what we have been through, and whom we have known - and, usually, it is not something that we chose for ourselves. In therapy, with courage, intention, and curiosity, we can better understand these ways of being, weaving them together by choice to create a life worth living and relationships worth having."
