I address the hurt, sadness, anger, anxiety and depression you feel and the loss of emotional contact in your important relationships. Sometimes painful loss arises from traumatic shock, and sometimes from the non-traumatic experiences of growing up. I can help you identify your needs and relieve your confusion about what is important, so that you can repair your connection with those you love. Healing is in the therapeutic relationship and the skills I can teach you that can enable you to live a freer life.
