My work with clients is based in attachment theory, believing that the strongest attachments from our life, greatly impact how we understand ourselves and our relationships . Family, work and school pose as great points of contact with addressing our basic needs for belonging and significance. For some, childhood can be a time of happiness, joy and excitement, and for others, it came be a time of disappointment, confusion and pain. When we understand the narratives we were given early on, we can choose to embrace or move beyond them. "
