You may be blaming yourself, someone else, or feeling that you are weak because you are looking for help. In truth, you are struggling with emotional issues because of your early experiences. It is impossible to have good self-esteem if you were made to feel that you were not 'good enough', you were to 'blame' and/or you were a bother,etc. Anyone with your backround would experience difficulties. My approach is based on excellent training and an easygoing but effective manner. I am interested in your backround only to understand your current problem more fully. If you were given little attention in your growing up years, it is no wonder that you seek a lot of attention as an adult. If as a child you became angry and your parents punished you, is it any wonder that you have difficulty with anger. My approach is not short-term as I work from the root of the problem, not the symptoms. I have been successful in helping people change and have always enjoyed my work and the people that have allowed me into their life.
