Thoughts on relational therapy...
“I want to love you without clutching, appreciate you without judging, join you without invading, invite you without demanding, leave you without guilt, criticize you without blaming, and help you without insulting. If I can have the same from you, then we can truly meet and enrich each other.”
― Virginia Satir
Hello. This quote, for me helps to express a piece of the ethos that is family therapy. If you have taken the time to find my spot on the internet and consider me as a possible candidate for your therapy journey, Thank you. I believe therapy involves creating a relationship that allows my clients to meet their goals and this quote helps to share some of what I believe relationships can truly be. Relationships are a key part of our opportunity for growth, but all too often love and connection become tools in a battle as the past clashes with the present and blurs possibilities for the future. I, like Virginia Satir, believe in our innate desire and ability as humans to grow. She once compared people to blossoms in the Spring, part of fully developed plants that made it through the Winter in need of nurturance from Mother Nature in order to open up and bloom. It is my belief that therapy can be a part of that nurturance in order for what you are looking for to bloom. Thanks for reading!
