Exploring & Healing Our Relationship with Ourselves


"Your first marriage is to yourself.  For better or worse, in sickness and in health...till death do you part." 





One of the core experiences of being human is the desire and need for belonging. Studies show that the happiest and healthiest people are those with meaningful and positive relationships.  At the same time relationships can cause great and deep wounding, resulting in a staggering level of fear, pain and avoidance getting in the way of true connection.


Relationships have the potential to hurt or heal us.  The first step to navigating toward better and healthier relationship and true belonging is by connecting, growing, and honoring the relationship with ourselves, first.


Part of the journey of life is meeting ourselves.  The exploration of "who am I?" in relationship is an essentiail part of growing in consciousness, wholeness, and balance that is often overlooked.  We are not usually taught this stuff.  In fact, I find that this comes up very often in my work with my clients.  


Therapy can help you to become kinder to yourself, explore and better understand who you are, what you need, and to build trust that you are capable of finding your own solutions. Often, we need help to start and learn to heal ourselves - be it your current self, your "inner child" or a past version that has been locked away and stuck at the time of trauma. Ultimately, connecting to you lets you build a firm foundation, waste less time, and be better equipped to find the relationship(s) you long for.  I look forward to helping you on this journey.
