Psychotherapy and Consultation
"Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It's a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity."
You are an inherently creative being capable of immense joy and fulfillment in your life and relationships. There are emotional blocks and outmoded behaviors that can interfere with the experience of this joy, fulfillment and connection with others. The purpose of therapy is to look with compassion at things you want to change and to build upon your existing strengths and inherent resilience.
“Love rests on two pillars: surrender and autonomy. Our need for togetherness exists alongside our need for separateness.”
"Don't waste another second thinking you're failing when really all you're doing is growing."
