When life is difficult the resulting symptoms usually include depression, anxiety, fear, anger and/or withdrawal. Rather than avoiding these states I have helped hundreds of clients turn them into resources, significantly improving their lives --usually after only a few sessions. I have 25+ years experience working with couples, individuals, families and groups, and have supervised 20+ new therapists. I specialize with couples, helping them to move beyond arguing, tension, anger, resentment and distancing into happy couples. My clients turn their problems into workable solutions.

We formulate beliefs about ourselves early in life. If we grow up in a nurturing and loving environment, individual beliefs might be that I am lovable, I am worthy and I deserve good things in life. Unfortunately, many of us grew up in families where our caregivers struggled with their own negative beliefs and were therefore not able to be there for us in a way that we needed them to be. Many people grow up thinking I am not worthy of love, connection or the good things in life.

Hearing your child say "I wish I was never born! I hate you! I wish I was dead!" is one of the most painful experiences as a parent. After hearing this, you decided it was time to find some help for your child and yourself. You thought things were going to get better, but it hasn't and now you're worried that it's only going to get worse. The parental guilt is overwhelming.
