"Past failures, poor decisions and missed opportunities result in feeling unforgiving towards ourself and cynical about life. Drugs, alcohol or other problematic behaviors may have been a source of coping but we have realized that the problems are still there and sometimes get worse. Learn about your addiction and you will learn about yourself. Making changes in our life begins by recognizing that changes need to occur. Our old ways of coping are no longer effective. Working with the right therapist can help you learn and apply new and adaptive coping skills to identify and maintain a life worth living."

"Sometimes, when faced with many of life's challenges, we can find it difficult to reach out. Often fear or shame get in the way of asking for help. But there is hope. Working with a therapist, you can begin to feel validated and discover that you are not alone. Do you have a fear of abandonment or fear of intimacy? One or the other can mean you're either a Love Addict or Love Avoidant. I can teach you how to love yourself instead of looking for it in someone else, and bring down your walls and be relational."
