"We are meant to heal. The relationship of therapist and client takes place within a safe haven created by respect, acceptance, attuned connection and trust. The process of healing unfolds through making sense of one’s story ~ understanding how distortions and survival modes may have developed in response to real life experiences, and responding with compassion and without self-blame. Within this alliance, painful feelings and thoughts can be explored and expressed, as well as new ways of coping and new ways of relating. I have worked with individuals, couples and families as they experience the challenges of relationships, and the loss and transitions of life passages."
