"Our physical and emotional scars do not define us as human beings; they merely reflect our strength and courage to live.These wounds, which we all possess, provide opportunities to fully embrace ourselves with love, acceptance and healing growth.Therapy offers us these possibilities in a safe, nonjudgmental, compassionate and constructive space." ~ Acey
