"I view therapy as an intimate journey inside yourself that's taken with the help, support and witness of another human being who's trained in guiding such journeys. In some ways, it's about relationship — relationship with yourself — which is learned via relationship with the therapist, so finding a therapist you like and feel good about is important."
