My Approach to Helping
Clients and I explore relationships within the family system. Our family of origin is embedded in us and one of the most critical elements of one's therapeutic work is to recognize patterns and one's own part in the process.Unresolved childhood hurts trickle down to our relationships both in love, in family, socially and at work.I am respectful, non judgmental, very interactive, warm and giving. I hope to strengthen your inner voice and allow for a more effective control of your emotional needs while reaching towards healthier and happier relationships.Individuals will develop better tools to navigate their worlds with less anxiety, less depressive moods while increasing self-worth, well-being and building more committed and solid relationships within their family, social arena,and work force.
