We all need, dream, even pray that we will find someone who will love us deeply. Humans long for unconditional love. If we find it, it seems miraculous. When it begins to fracture we feel desperate and terrified. The horrific fights stun us. The emptiness of living like roommates numbs us. Because life on this “school” called planet earth can be brutal at times, I also work with the traumatized. I help couples and individuals whose hearts are wounded, feel broken and have lost faith. I believe that the pursuit of truth and sanity leads to peace. Often, it may be for the first time.
The heart is wired to heal.. However, it is the nature of being human that healing can't take place outside of a trusting relationship. If we could heal alone, self help books would happily put therapists out of business. I specalize in sex therapy, relationship discord, feeings of being unlovable and recovery from both chronic and single event trauma.
I am well aware that making a call to a therapist is often a frightening endeavor. One of the biggest concerns is "How do I pick the "right" therapist , That elusive "chemistry" between patient and therapist is ciritical and preticts a good outcome. . If it is not there for any reason , I will work with you to find the right fit.
