A psycho-therapeutic relationship provides an opportunity for self-reflection and expression of feelings in the presence of a supportive listener. This may lead to taking emotional risks in other relationships and the prospect for relating in a new way.

I work with a wide range of humanity, including: traumatic relationship and work endings, the death of loved ones, oppressive situations, crushing anxiety, shame over one's identity, and the terror that long-ago trauma, and neglect or abuse still brings to the present. 

Life circumstances and expectations of oneself can lead to self-loathing, or blocks expressed as anxiety, depression, and career or relationship issues. A therapeutic relationship can assist in short-term relief or long-term resolution, and a richer life.

Many people feel they should be self-sufficient and are afraid or ashamed of being reliant on others. In order to hold on to a sense of goodness or to preserve a relationship, one may give up their needs, act in compulsive ways, or unconsciously bury parts of themselves. 

These missing parts of one self can be rediscovered or discovered for the first time. Therapy provides an environment where one can access hidden or frozen feelings, which often leads to better relationships, solutions to specific problems, and a significant reduction in feelings of distress.
