Of special interest to me are those individuals who have been raised to believe that they are not special, and experience the suffering resulting from focusing more on the needs and feelings of others than their own. I assist my clients in developing their personal boundaries and limitations required to establish their own equal "space" within relationships, and to achieve the necessary freedom from re-enacting their familial role and associated feelings with that role.

I pay close attention to how my clients unknowingly find themselves attracted to the same type of safe, but ultimately unsatisfying people and relational position, and provide a deeper understanding of the "purpose" this serves. Together we create a healthier pattern of relating with themselves, others, and the environment.
