Most relationship problems and emotional issues that I have witnessed are the result of beliefs formed early in childhood around certain events, creating a world view that no longer serves the client. Reactivity and strong feelings are often triggered because of this. I help clients explore the source and origin of those beliefs and form new, healthier, empowering beliefs that reduce the trigger points and create a stronger sense of personal well being. This,in turn, changes behavior, rather easily.

I approach psychotherapy from a systems prospective. We all grow up in a family that teaches us beliefs, values, and behaviors that persist throughout life. Understanding our past and how it may be impacting current relationships is sometimes an undesirable exercise; however, taking the strengths from our past and building on them is one goal of therapy. I find that engaging the past actually frees us to live a more congruent life that is filled with richer relationships.
