Can talking about your problems really make things better? Well, sometimes a thoughtful structured approach to life's challenges can be very helpful. But sometimes talking just doesn't seem to make our lives different. When we go through something challenging, upsetting, or overwhelming, our bodies are involved in the response. This means to resolve the issue, our bodies need to be involved in addressing the solution.

When one experiences trauma, it is possible that how they relate to others may change. I strongly believe that relationships; how we relate and interact with others, is the cornerstone of healthy living. What is left unresolved from one's history or childhood often finds its way into the relationships one has in the present. As a family therapist, I spend my time supporting individuals and families in exploring these past experiences that have made them into who they are now, allowing them to move forward and live a healthy lifestyle.
