Welcome to TouchingTrees
When my grandmother told me about her great-grandmother, I knew that it was a story that would resonate with me for the rest of my life. She told me that my great-grandmother made a point of touching each of the trees on her farm before the family left the homestead.
I see "touching trees" as a way to say goodbye with honor to our struggles, and also as a way to be present in saying hello to new opportunities. "Touching trees" in therapy means seeking deeper meaning in our actions and taking greater pride in our strengths.
My role in your life is to help you understand the "trees" (the people, the situations, the decisions, and the moments of time)
that have been part of your journey and to help you invite your next trees to take root.
"I could almost feel the bark under my own fingers, maybe oak or maybe maple, each tree unique -- each tree there long before her time and each tree there, serving as a witness to her life, after she left."
Jenni, from her book Touching the Trees
