Crecer, which means ‘to grow’ in Spanish, is a process through which a living organism becomes larger, more mature, better developed in different and multiple aspects. To grow psycho-emotionally and in relation with others is a human right and a responsibility that sometimes includes the need and/or desire to engage in a psychotherapy experience that can help us feel better equipped to engage in a necessary changing and healing endeavor.
