"Let me look upward into the branches of a flowering oak and know that it grew great and strong because it grew slowly and well." -Wilfred Peterson
Starting from a tiny acorn, the oak grows into a sturdy, majestic tree. The world around the oak can be harsh at times with storms, strong winds, animals, disease, or lack of nutrients impacting its ability to grow. Yet, the oak is able to withstand all of this and grow for hundreds of years. The visible marks and wounds the oak displays makes each of them beautifully unique. We too are faced with emotional and at times physical hardships in our lives. It is during these times that we must reach out for help, just as the branches and roots of an oak tree reach for sunlight and water in order to heal and grow. I applaud you for taking the first step in reaching out for help during what may be a troubling time, a time of change, or simply for preventative health and well-being. Sometimes, taking that first step is the hardest one of all. I encourage you to explore my website, learn about my practice and approach to therapy, and determine if I am the right fit for you, your child, or your family's needs. Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.
