Announcement icon I am accepting new clients, for online counseling or the phone. My clients find it very effective and love the time it saves them.

About

Most of my clients have one parent who is self-centered. That has led me to specialize in ADULT CHILDREN OF NARCISSISTS. Areas of self-esteem that are affected are, not feeling lovable, taking care of others but not yourself, feeling you are bad, to blame, selfish, a bother etc. As a child of a narcissist I know how you feel and it is not good.. My work does not focus only on how to cope better, but how to get rid of the problem. An example is ANXIETY. Anxiety is often an UNCONSCIOUS response to feeling, old hurtful feelings, like HELPLESS, HUMILIATED (bullied), and ABANDONED. In healing these feelings you become less anxious.
I have specialized in anxiety, depression and poor self esteem for 35 years, My theory base is analytical (psychodynamic), evidence based with excellent LONG TERM results. In your free consultation I will explain how we can build self esteem and rid you of endless negative feelings. You can have a healthier relationships with YOURSELF and others.
I accept insurance and offer a free 50 minute consultation, in which I demonstrate how I work in sessions, and what we need to do to resolve your problem and increase your self esteem. I work7 days a week, have 35+ years experience and am trained in the best schools. In the current situation I use the telephone and zoom. Let's talk. 905-881-4040
