Want to improve how you manage your relationships? Want to survey the relationship before you say "I do"? Maybe you're overwhelmed by stress or struggling with your inner critic. Are there family issues or childhood wounds (root issues) you'd like to address? I want to help you. In addition to education and training, I have personal experience with surviving life's challenges. I refer to therapy as holding someone's hands while they find their feet. Therapy is work, but we will walk through it together.
