Real change is hard, long-term work not meant to be done alone. Dysfunctions around sexuality, food, money and work (the so-called "process" addictions) are primarily a struggle with intimacy. One needs to understand THE FUNCTION OF one's own self - destructive behaviors: that self hatred is not low self esteem; that contempt for others is not good self concept; that my wife is not the problem; and that sex is not my greatest need. I am several steps ahead of you on a journey I encourage you to take. Real change is hard, don't do it alone. :)

My process is well-rounded, with considerations for personal struggles and the world you live in (friends, family, work, etc). Personal healing through deep self-reflections are often experienced through an adaptive combination of narrative therapy, systemic therapy, and reality therapy. I have a history of extensive trauma work. This experience has led to an approach that includes a bringing together of painful past experiences with their impact upon your daily life. Therapy works to unravel such pain, and then promote active daily empowering to counter and overcome the impact of those hard experiences.

"Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars" (Khalil Gibran). While suffering is part of life, and moving on always a possibility, figuring out how to reorganize the pieces of our puzzle after trauma has occurred can be a daunting task. Too often, we allow our past experiences and our scars to define who we are, and we get stuck in a dark place, incapable of taking that first step. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to walk that path with you.

Have you ever felt as though everything that you’ve planned for in your life is falling apart piece by piece? Sometimes when this is happening we feel as though we are alone. What if the answer is right in front of us and we just can’t find it?

I want to work with you where you are at and help you achieve the goals you want to achieve. Together as a team we will work step by step to achieve a happier and healthier life.

I often speak with survivors of sexual abuse who-- perhaps like you-- have focused for the better part of their life on their education, their career, their marriage, or on caring for their children. They thought they had “gotten over it,” that the abuse they suffered has been locked away tightly enough...but inside they know it continues as an undercurrent in their life. When feelings surface, they feel broken, powerless, that their voice doesn’t matter. Sometimes they think they will never be loved, or that they don’t deserve love. They may think that it’s their fault and that they should have done something differently.

www.lissafriedman.com - I like to help people find the deep knot of their pattern, gently lovingly untie it, and bring healing to the wound. I have been a therapist for about 30 years, and in private Practice since 1987. While my style is eclectic, it is my warmth, compassion, and acceptance that underlie all of my work. I try to provide an environment, much like a container, for my clients to open to their own natural self compassion and acceptance. Seeing each person as whole, rather than deficient provides an environment for people to come to a natural place of healing.

Research shows that the number one predictor of success in therapy is the relationship between a client and their therapist. Specific therapy modalities are important, but clients report the most progress when they feel that they have truly been heard and understood by a caring therapist. My approach goes beyond just developing insight and changing thoughts. Together, we will do a "deep dive" into underlying burdens and core negative beliefs to release you from their grip so you can live the life you want and deserve.

Many of the clients I work with are suffering due to events that they, their ancestors, and/or their community experienced which may have involved oppression, attachment wounds, mood related difficulties, loss, or others impacts. I offer a place where you can identify and explore emotions without experiencing judgment, learn ways to sit with pain without it becoming overwhelming, and begin to feel whole, valuable, and connected.
