When we deny our feelings, pushing them away (depressing them), we get depressed. When we shame our needs and criticize ourselves for being weak/needy, we strengthen the fear that causes us to hide who we really are. This increases anxiety. When we deny traumatic memories, we develop Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Numbing reality and denying real injustices will protect us from pain in the short run. Denying what is real, however, flings us into an inner conflict in which we hate the things that need love the most, and love the things that make us most dysfunctional.
I specialize in the following: depression, anxiety, PTSD, bipolar mood disorder, ADHD, marital problems, grief recovery, and in the integration of psychology and spirituality. I believe that compassion and supportive, loving relationship are at the core of all healing and growth. Without love, we really are nothing. 1 Corinthians 13.
I have been a therapist for over 30 years. I have a passion for helping people heal and grow. I love Henri Nouwen's book title, "The Wounded Healer". Those who have walked their own healing path become the most effective healers. Feel free to give me a call.
