Professional Interests / Specialties:
The issues that bring a person into therapy generally stem from thoughts,
feelings, and behaviors that essentially are attempts to protect against some
bad outcome. Healing and improvement comes when there is understanding
concerning what's really going on, and when the past hurt or humiliation is
addressed. A major component of this process is an increase in self-esteem and
the experience of joy through the realization of one's true identity.
