About Me

“I’m responsible. I’m not good enough. I’m not safe.” These messages may replay in your mind during conflict, in relationships, at your job, or in your daily routine. They may make it hard to set boundaries in your family or relationships, pursue your interests, passions, or personal goals without guilt, or feel connected to your emotions or self. These core beliefs developed throughout your life and because of your experiences, but they do not have to define your present. In your work with me, we will develop a collaborative relationship through person centered and humanistic approaches that address attachment and trauma histories.
