I work to help people realize the fullness of who they are by improving their relationship to themselves. When affected by painful feelings the tendency often is to turn against oneself with persecutory thoughts and feelings. This never has the intended outcome of getting through a hard time but only creates depression, shame, and withdrawal from relationships and life. I am experienced and skilled at discerning how one is relating to self. Relationship to self is mostly an unconscious process and to become more comfortable and confident with oneself it is necessary to discover in painful detail how one is relating to self. The awareness of this is powerful and creates changes. One can then feel better about oneself which brings self esteem and confidence in relating to others. Relationships become enjoyable rather than something to withdraw from.
