Everyone faces situations we don't want - death, divorce, illness, financial problems, conflicts or personal challenges. Viewing those challenges as 'life experiences' often provide valuable opportunities to learn, grow and develop. That evolutionary process is the foundation of my practice, and also serves me well in my own personal growth. Through my work, I help people create individual transformation from the inside-out. For most people, coaching or counseling is helpful, and sometimes essential in order to fully understand how we may be contributing to our own problems, or even undermining what we say we desire in our lives.

When we deny our feelings, pushing them away (depressing them), we get depressed. When we shame our needs and criticize ourselves for being weak/needy, we strengthen the fear that causes us to hide who we really are. This increases anxiety. When we deny traumatic memories, we develop Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Numbing reality and denying real injustices will protect us from pain in the short run. Denying what is real, however, flings us into an inner conflict in which we resist the things that we need the most, and cling to the things that make us most dysfunctional.

In the process of answering these questions, a divorce therapist helps you work towards acceptance and forgiveness.
