Growing SafelyThis blog often contains material related to emotional healing. Please note that when undertaking emotional healing there is always the possibility of destabilizing ones emotional state and behavior in that process. Nothing presented in this blog should ever take the place of professional help, and trauma work, especially, should be done under the supervision of a psychotherapist. Though I have tried to speak about various means of healing in general terms, there are times when it can be unsafe to try what I describe here without professional help--whether for trauma or any other concern. If you have any questions, consult a licensed therapist. Do grow...but do it safely!
