I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist providing therapy for adults, children/adolescents, and/or their families. I’ve found that many people come to me with narratives that describe themselves as “bad” or broken and not good enough, thinking that they will never succeed or are unworthy of love or respect. These false beliefs often prevent them from making lasting changes or from forming meaningful relationships. These beliefs can create problematic behaviors and can put a strain on many areas of their lives. This can lead to creating a hopeless narrative for not only themselves, but for their family as well.
