Feel flawed or different from others? Find yourself in unsatisfying relationships? Judge yourself harshly or fear criticism from others? Sacrifice your own needs to meet the needs of others? Ready to make changes? Plain and simple, I get results. In this 20-Week Group Program, I help you heal the painful legacies of growing up in a family where there was emotional, verbal, physical, or sexual abuse, neglect, abandonment, or addiction. Based on the internationally acclaimed work of John Bradshaw, this group helps you develop healthy, intimate relationships, restores your self-esteem, and frees your ability to create and achieve.

I use powerful techniques proven to heal toxic shame, childhood wounds, and feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt. In this safe group, I guide you to recover your inner child and authentic self. As a result, you create relationships where truth is spoken, feelings are expressed, and trust exists.

I help you release painful relationships with parents, partners, and others and teach you to establish healthy boundaries, allowing you to create connection with yourself and intimacy with others. Unblock your creativity and spontaneity and experience your spirituality. See what graduates say about this program: creativegrowth.com/20-week-intensive/
