Therapy offers a setting in the service of further knowing and understanding one's feelings, so as to be better able to respectfully care for one's self. Generally, the more choices we have in caring for our feelings, the better we usually feel and function. Learning to talk through feelings lessens the risks of those feelings being acted out in self-destructive ways. Constructive self-management contributes to self-esteem. Self-understanding, in combination with more clearly defined personal boundaries, makes for more satisfying relationships with others.
For over 30 years, I've been working with adult clients dealing with life adjustments, the challenges of balancing personal and professional lives, along with some who have dealt with eating disorders, and/or other forms of personal trauma.
