It is known as the "Man in the Maze," an emblem of the Tohono O'odham Nation of Southern Arizona (formerly known as the Papago Indians).
The design, depicts a person exiting a labyrinth.
With variations, labriynths appeared among other Pre-Columbian peoples in the Americas. In fact, the symbol also sprang up in ancient Europe.
A common interpretation of the symbol represents the journeys everyone must take in life. Journeys which give meaning to life.
I believe that a person faces challenges, twists and turns that require new ways of behaving and new ways of seeing the world. Healing often means finding a place within oneself, a center, where these new ways can be learned.
As I understand it, the journey of healing does not end once a person reaches the center. An essential part of transformation is the journey back, where the person returns to life with their new gifts, sharing them with others.
In order for therapy to succeed, a relationship of trust must exist between you and the therapist. it is appropriate for you to consider whether you feel comfortable, understood, and respected. The right fit is important.
My goal is to provide a comfortable setting and an environment of safety, respect, and understanding. In such an environment, a person can learn to understand patterns of thinking, develop solutions, and clarify hopes for the future.
Persons come to therapy for a variety of
reasons such as wanting to live more fulfilling lives and to have healthier relationships.
Therapy can help some people understand different perspectives on matters that are causing concern. They may want to address troubling issues, including those that have persisted for a long time.
