When we speak we are afraid our words will not be heard or welcomed. But when we are silent, we are still afraid. So it is better to speak.
What is Lagom?
Lagom (pronounced "Law-gum") is a Swedish term meaning "enough, sufficient, or just right." Too often, individuals struggle to perceive themselves as "enough" due to various traumatic events, whether it be rape, sexual abuse, domestic violence, gang violence, etc.
I use this concept of Lagom as the main guidepost for my approach to therapy, as I provide a safe space for individuals to process their experiences in a different way, and to gain the knowledge that they are indeed enough just as they are.
