As emotional healing takes place, we awaken to ourselves, to others, to our lives. My work initially involves setting up an environment of safety and trust. In this surround, challenges from the past and present can be unearthed, explored and used to our advantage. Growth is born of struggle, not comfort. Building a story of your experiences, helps one find continuity and purpose in life. I am present, listening and feeling as our work unfolds. I challenge and confront but also validate one's experiences and emotional responses to those experiences. Being seen, heard and understood begets healing.

Sometimes the home you grew up in was not ideal and your early environment did not help you become the best version of yourself. Our early experiences can leave a lasting negative impact. You may grow up with poor self-worth, mood swings, and relationship problems. Sometimes, bad things happen in adulthood and are difficult to comprehend. Either way, trauma, depression, and anxiety can take hold and eventually the meaningful aspects of your life (going out, seeing friends, holding a job) start shrinking while emotional pain continues to grow. Therapy can help stop this process and help you reclaim your life.

Powerlessness, isolation, insecurity, self-doubt, shame and despair. Maybe today, my partner will value me and make me feel "good enough" for the love I desperately need. The cycle of emotional abuse and manipulation begins, and your negative thoughts spiral out of control. You begin to question your sanity, make excuses for their behavior and change who you are to avoid conflict. You become disconnected from your loved ones and lose value in the things you once had passion for. You lose your sense of self and your purpose in life. You are a victim of narcissistic abuse, and you CAN break the cycle and become a SURVIVOR.
