Robin Richardson, LCSW-C

Certified Imago Relationship Therapist
Certified EMDR Therapist

Regarding our relationship to self, Ralph Waldo Emerson said it best when he mentioned that “our understanding of truth, even though we may understand it differently next week, must be our compass — not popular opinion and not our own imposed will.”

He mentions further that in our relationship with our partners/spouse or others, “we can support each other in our quest for truth, love and meaning, while respecting and honoring anotherís differences.”

Some readers may wonder if a relationship to self and/or another, as Emerson suggests, is possible, especially if their current relationship is being experienced as painful and unsatisfying.

As a therapist and a witness to many individual and relationship transformations, I am always humbled by what is possible in spite of what looks and feels like the impossible.
