"When a great ship is in harbor and moored, it is safe, there can be no doubt. But that is not what great ships are made for." -Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes


I'm Lara

I often describe my role as a therapist to be that of a metaphorical spelunking guide. Spelunking refers to the exploration of caves, a journey that leads one into the darkness, the depths, where there is little light and it can be difficult to breathe. 


The mental health journey can be equated to that of spelunking. On this human path, we often find ourselves in the depths of despair, not knowing the way forward or if there is even a way to find ourselves back in the light. In these depths, it is all too easy to become lost, fearful, full of shame, stuck, or hopeless. 


We can forget about the beauty and the treasures to be found in the dark and sometimes seemingly endless caves of suffering– but they are always there, the treasures– If only we keep our minds and hearts open to discovery.


Spelunking our inner depths can be a difficult task to do alone, and having a guide to help us navigate the dark caverns of this being human can be the key to not only discovering the treasures hidden in even our most painful experiences but also the key to orienting ourselves back to the light.

We're meant to find beauty in suffering. We're not meant to do it alone.
