I like to think of therapists as guides, helping us to discover and explore aspects of ourselves and our histories. Shining a flashlight into those blind spots that we might not want to see, or finding paths down roads that look too tangly or overgrown to venture down alone. Sometimes we disagree about where to go next, but we chart a path together as thought partners.
