Announcement icon Due to COVID-19, I offer videoconferencing and outdoor walk-and-walk sessions. I am fully vaccinated and see clients in my office too now.
Life could be so good! But you keep getting sucked back into old patterns and family conflicts. You want to devote time and energy to your career, to creating a partnership, to making a difference. Everyone else can see your potential. But your family always pulls you back into that familiar cycle. There’s always one more crisis to resolve. Soon, you're enmeshed in a drama that has nothing to do with you. When you assert yourself, you’re attacked for being selfish – forsaking the family that raised you. How can you be a loving, responsible member of your family, when it feels like they’re sucking the life out of you?
There is a way to maintain family relationships and focus on your own life. I provide a warm, supportive environment for you to learn the skills you need to enforce boundaries, assert your own needs, and decide for yourself how much of a role your family plays in your day-to-day experience.
You deserve a life with you in the driver’s seat, focusing on your vision for the future – without so many complications. You can still respect your family and have a life of your own. You can repair family relationships without being the sacrificial lamb. Call me for a free phone consultation. Start the journey toward independence now!
