Meet Our Group
As therapists we believe strongly in a creative process.
Our name - L.I.F.E. - is a statement about the creative
nature of change, healing, growth, and transformation.
Learning - about who we are, why we are that way, what’s important to us, our strengths and weaknesses in relationships, what we want to change or keep as is, and how we choose to live our life is an important first step toward health, growth, and transformation.
Integration - of the various parts of ourselves can be the next phase. Like a conductor directing an orchestra, we can create harmony, cohesiveness, and clarity when we bring these disparate parts together with direction, compassion, insight, and inspiration.
Fulfillment - often comes after we know ourselves more deeply and authentically and have well-defined goals we feel we’re moving towards.
Essence - knowing, being, and doing what is important to us leads to purpose and meaning in life. These qualities form the essence of our existence.
