Why “The Willow Partnership”?
Willow trees are strong, flexible trees that thrive in some of the most challenging conditions. The long, flexible branches provide solace and comfort and a safe place for birds to seek shelter and nourishment. This image represents my view on my clients: individuals with the ability to thrive even during the most challenging times, capable of providing safety, security, and growth to themselves, as well as to others. Together, we form a partnership as client and therapist to explore and process the conditions that may have “bent branches,” yet with a focus on the strength and resilience that allows each individual to grow and foster not only love and acceptance of themselves, but also of those within their canopy.
