"Most people that I see in my practice do not have an emotional or psychological illness but are faced with professional or relationship issues that are causing personal distress. These issues when not understood and dealt with can create symptoms of anxiety, depression and a loss of satisfaction in personal, professional, and intimate relationships. They can also interfere with the full expression of a person's unique abilities and the fulfillment of his or her goals. "
