My practice is geared towards working through issues related to emotional/relational violence and trauma caused by abuse (physical, sexual, emotional). I also work with clients who have found themselves depressed and/or anxious due to some of these problems in their history. I believe in helping you find new ways of relating to yourself and others that foster wholeness, peace and honesty. My approach is couched in a mixture of kindness and truth, the goal being for you to see yourself more clearly with a greater sense of love and esteem, leading to increased contentment in life and relationships.
Emotional violence/abuse is often at the core of our problems; we usually mask these deep hurts with depression/anxiety or a destructive addiction. Just as these wounds happened in relationships, so the healing is found in relationship with someone showing you empathy and honesty, helping you fully grieve the past.
