“In my private practice, I have noticed many people are struggling with issues of being honest in their relationships, forthright in their business dealings, fearing being manipulated by loved ones, or mired in politics at work... not to mention devastation from economic downturns and natural disasters. These experiences lead to feelings of betrayal. In response, we often react in ways that injure our own self respect and damage trust. I strive to provide clients with the tools they need to take the next steps in their own healing process.”
