I learned long ago in my own therapy that to be happy, first I had to learn to love myself. Now, as a marriage and family therapist, I help my clients do the same. Therapist Carl Rogers said, "The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change." You don't have to be perfect; it's okay to make mistakes. To realize your dreams, you must face your fears and take risks. It's easier when you stop worrying so much about reaching your goal, and learn to savor the process itself.
You may be struggling with feelings like anger, jealousy, guilt or shame. You seek relief, but are uncomfortable talking about your feelings. I help you manage your anxiety during session, so you can discuss feelings you usually avoid. Then, together, we resolve the conflicts that have been making you unhappy.
Healthy families communicate honestly, and with sensitivity. Each expresses his/her needs without using criticism or blame. I teach families how to really listen, and how to communicate their needs without making others feel attacked. We are a village; you don't have to go it alone; I can help.
