In early relationships we learn much about how life is to be lived. We learn to trust and not trust. We learn to celebrate what is good and to survive what is painful, disappointing, and unwanted.
We then carry our survival skills into adulthood, where at some point they can being to work against us, protecting us from the very love and close relationships we long for. They get in our way but are hard to see and to let go.
Therapy helps to see our learned survival skills, examine their usefulness to us as adults, and trade them in for new living skills that invite richer relationship and a life more fully alive.
Therapy with me offers you a safe place for grieving what has been lost, finding richer ways of being, restoring hope, and renewing relationships.
