Last week I finally got to have a closure meeting with my old therapist. I'm so glad that I got a chance to do that. I feel like I finally got to say what I needed to say and it was good to hear her response to what I said. I gave her a drawing as thanks for everything we worked on together and to show my appreciation for what she helped me accomplish.

This is what I wrote on the back of the drawing:
"The flower is a representation of therapy and what it was like for me working with you. The flower is made up of warm colors – pinks, red and purple – to represent the safe and warm environment that you created. The twisted stem represents working together in the therapeutic relationship. The flower blooms out to show how you created hope that there is something better than what I’m going through right now. The hill on the side is the one that therapy is helping me climb to get through depression and PTSD. The background sky goes from dark to bright to show how I feel like I progressed from a darker place and made changes to get to a better place."
