You are shaped by your experiences. The good ones, the not so good ones, and the devastating ones. As you grew through life, you developed a set of tools which you used to help you navigate through its many ups and downs. Many of the tools you use are helpful; you use them to form friendships or to attain goals. Unfortunately, people tend to get stuck using tools which were once essential in helping them to survive, but which are now no longer needed.
In fact, these tools now hinder them and are now the same tools keeping people stuck in unhappiness, unfulfilled relationships, and toxic relationships. The relationship we have with ourselves can sometimes be a difficult one. I work with clients to help them heal the fractured relationships both with themselves and with others in their lives. I provide a new experience of an interpersonal relationship which involves self-understanding that can ultimately lead to self-acceptance.
Do you often find yourself: in unsuccessful relationship after unsuccessful relationship; using negative self-talk to keep you going; grieving your past; fighting with your partners or loved ones; feeling guilty and anxious but unsure as to why; lost; lonely? I can help you to understand the reasons for these behaviors. Together we will find what tools you can put aside and discover which tools you can learn to use to become successful in having the relationship you desire.

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process
It's important to try to recognize what it is about the therapy process that concerns you. Are you afraid of bringing up painful memories? Are you afraid you may come to feel differently about others as you come to better understand yourself? Maybe you're afraid of understanding yourself? Or maybe you've had a bad experience with therapy in the past? These are all very valid concerns. These are also things to address with your therapist so he or she can help to ease these worries and concerns.
Therapy is not meant to turn your world and beliefs upside down. It is not meant to place blame, rather, to understand the reason for things. It is not meant to vilify or idolize others, rather, to help you see the many perspectives in our relationships. And therapy is all about you, so it is important you find a therapist with whom you feel you can really open up. If you feel you cannot connect with your therapist, then find another with whom you can. The relationship one has with one's therapist has been shown to be one of the most important factors of effective therapy. If you feel you cannot be yourself with your therapist, then you might want to ask yourself if you are really taking care of yourself by staying in another relationship which keeps you from being your true self.
Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
People often think therapy is for those who are "crazy". "If I am in therapy, then there must be something wrong with me!" is the stigma many have regarding therapy. However, therapy is to help one understand oneself and to better understand the reasons for their feelings, thoughts, and behaviors.
Therapy is seeking knowledge. It takes courage to acknowledge we sometimes need help and an inner strength to take those first steps to seek it. Therapy does not mean one is broken, but it does help to heal the many cracks we acquire as we go through life. While helping you to feel better, therapy can have some pretty painful moments, too. There's a good chance you're seeking therapy due to some difficult events or relationships you have experienced. To get to the heart of the problem, we need to visit the wounds. This takes a courage and strength which you may not have known you possess - but which you will find, in fact, you do.
