Maybe from the outside, everything looks fine. But inside, there is sadness or worry -- parts of you that are wounded, burdened, trapped in an endless cycle of pain. Maybe other parts of you are caught in extreme roles of perfectionism, self-criticism, addictions -- anything to get you numb or keep you distracted. Keeping these wounded parts hidden is a full-time job - and maybe it feels too scary to be yourself in relationships. If unresolved issues from your past are keeping you from having the kind of life you want, I'd like to help.
