Human beings grow, change, develop and explore in relationship with each other. They can also experience so much pain, trauma, neglect, and loss in these connections. Therapy is another type of relationship, one that seeks to not only explore how we connect and have connected with others, but also to repair and restore our capacity to continue to build connection. Therapy is also a place to explore the most important and enduring relationship any of us have, which is our relationship with our self.
