Message to clients

If you’re a little nervous starting therapy, I totally get it. For many of us, the decision to start therapy only comes after years of dissatisfaction with our lives and relationships, leaving us feeling unsure of ourselves and willing to try anything. Believe me, I’ve been there before. As a therapist, I often joke that I help my clients work through my issues.

The clients I work best with are battling with the effects of relational trauma, which can be especially difficult because most of us don’t even know what relational trauma is. You might think you had a happy childhood, but now as an adult you find yourself struggling in relationships of all kinds.

You don’t know how to set boundaries.

You feel selfish when you put yourself first.

You feel guilty giving people negative feedback

The bottom line is on a deep level you feel that it’s wrong to be your true self if it will bother someone else.

If that sounds like you, you’re not alone, and there is hope. Together we’ll identify what happened in your life that taught you to hide your true self, and we’ll forge a path from where you are now to the life you were born to live.
