What is the practice of being relational? It starts with the Five Core principles for healthy living: loving the self, protecting the self (through use of internal boundaries), creating and knowing the self, taking care of the self by asking for what you need and want interdependently, and containing and moderating the self (Pia Mellody). My treatment with clients incorporates the foundational underpinnings that create healing, growth and renewal.
