Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe that the major focus of therapy is the creation of a healing environment in which the therapist and client can explore the nature of the clients emotional wounding and what is healing for them. This emphasizes the importance of relational patterns of connection, both past and present and the importance of the therapeutic relationship in the healing process. Relationship is the where the healing takes place.
