Relationships can bring happiness, but also create longing and loneliness. They can preoccupy us and destroy our sense of safety and self-respect. If you feel stuck, overwhelmed, afraid, or lost, or are unable to decide about staying or leaving, have resolvable conflicts, unmet needs, or feel devalued, I can help, particularly around issues of codependency, trauma, communication, intimacy, and self-esteem. You'll gain awareness in your first session, then quickly see changes in handling emotions, conflict, and boundaries. Whether seeking individual or couple counseling, you'll find solutions, feel more empowered, and an improved sense of well-being.
My approach is individual and intuitive to make you feel comfortable. Along with advanced training, for 30 years I've helped individuals and couples affected by low self-esteem, codependency, abuse, anxiety, trauma, conflict, and addiction. I draw on extensive personal experience and professional training in using powerful healing techniques.
As a relationship and self-esteem expert, I wrote "Codependency for Dummies," "Conquering Shame and Codependency," and ebooks: "10 Steps to Self-Esteem," "How to Speak Your Mind," "Spiritual Transformation in the Twelve Steps." Call for phone coaching or therapy. Visit my website for FREE "14 Tips for Letting Go."
