Dr. Abdell’s premise is that we all hold the keys to our own growth and development. Being effectively understood and nurtured in therapy are key factors in the healing process. The unresolved disturbing and traumatic experiences we incur throughout our lives negatively impact the way we live and love. Personal growth and development are natural outcomes of resolving internalized emotional struggles and traumas. Just as there is a biological drive for the body to heal, there is also an emotional imperative to heal the wounds garnered in living our lives.
