When you felt bad as a kid, who did you talk to? Was it okay to talk about what you needed? Did you feel seen, heard, and acknowledged? The way our feelings and needs were handled or ignored as a child has a big impact on just about every element in our lives today - relationships, how we communicate, reaching goals, even our self-image. If you struggle with finding a partner, managing relationship conflict, negative self-talk, codependency, and expressing yourself authentically these can be related to early experiences in your family. It's likely that you came up with some coping strategies that worked back then but don't today.

Emotional pain and mental challenges can overwhelm us and keep us from reaching our goals. In these times it is often necessary to seek professional assistance to move us past the ruts in our lives. I work best with people who have had difficulty with relating to their emotions, resolving past suffering, spiritual abuse, chronic illness, somatic issues, finding meaning, and navigating life transitions.

Do you find it difficult to say no, or have a hard time answering the question of; "who am I,"? Perhaps you find yourself very much "there for" others, but having difficulty knowing what it means to take care of yourself along the way? Often, we find ourselves in patterns of relating to others in which our own self takes a back of the bus seat, if a seat at all. However, in this way of relating to ourself & others, we can often feel resentful, anxious or even depressed. It can be very helpful to have space to begin to value the question of who you are & to move forward from there into a healthier way of relating.

People-Pleasing gone wild? Feeling responsible for EVERYTHING? Empaths and highly responsible people usually feel their best qualities are given to others at their own expense. Emotional Abuse appears in many forms, particularly compassion anxiety, compassion fatigue, grief, low self-worth, and trouble with life skills. I've identified 10 symptoms of most anxiety AND a plan for gifting yourself with the best tools to deposit mind-clutter to the curb.

Before I came to America I worked with soccer teams helping their players deal with anxiety, something I still do. Twice per year I return to England so therefore clients who are relatively independent and not in crisis are the best suited to working with me. Consequently, I do have a network of excellent support therapists who work with some of my clients while I am away. Many of my current clients are not sports people, they often have to cope with big work and home pressures. I try to help them locate their inner resources while maintaining a supportive stance throughout our meeting.

Kindness is your curse. Think of others before yourself, they said. Stop being selfish. The more you weigh opinions, the more you feel disconnected from yourself. You've noticed the joy you once felt from giving is feeling empty and obligatory. You are drained with said and unsaid demands others place on you without a word. Instinctively, you feel therapy with someone unbiased could help and even have offered this advice to others, but you get caught up in thinking you're too privileged to want more in your life. After all, you know people have it worse than you. Heck, your parents had it way worse than you.

* TELETHERAPY PROVIDED AT A SLIDING SCALE* The self can be the source of much mystery and turmoil. Unexpected life events, interpersonal troubles, and difficult transitions can leave you feeling lost. Sometimes we can lean on our community and other resources, but it can be tough to find a safe space to explore our true needs and feelings. In a world where everybody has an opinion, an unbiased perspective can be hard to find. Therapy can be a transformative experience of acknowledging Self and finding a higher level of functioning.
