We are all storytellers. This is true whether we realize it or not. The events of our lives link themselves together to form the story of who we are as individuals, couples, and families. The way we view our present and how we look to the future is shaped by our past experiences and relationships.
All of these experiences (past and present), all of these stories, tell us something about ourselves and those around us. Stories are how we make sense of the world. This is why storytelling is so important; if we don’t know our story then we will live in a constant state of confusion. This persistent ambivalence will degrade our minds, our bodies, and our hearts.
To be well is to know your story. Are you an individual, couple, or family that wants to know your story? We can help you tell your story, we can help you heal, we can help you connect with yourself and those you love. Let’s get started today.
