Our logo depicts a lotus in bloom. The lotus is a fascinating flower, because it grows deep in mud and dirty water, yet rises above its environment to blossom beautifully. It’s a symbol of resilience and rebirth. Therapy can help those who feel trapped in the darkest, most difficult places to rise above the mud - and to grow and blossom as individuals.
