Individual therapy consists of one-on-one interaction with the therapist and client. Our most essential relationship in life is our intimate relationship with ourselves. Our relationship with our authentic self dictates how we treat ourselves and connect with others. The authentic self  includes true emotions, thoughts, expectations, self-concept, and our belief system. If our relationship with ourselves is destructive in any form it  can negatively impact our level of happiness and peace. Personal destruction can come out in many different symptoms such as anxietydepression, trauma, addiction, perfectionism, self-criticism, and relationship problems.

Together, we will identify patterns that occur that prevents closeness and safety, while, at the same time, we will work towards secure attachment as a couple. We will teach you healthy communication skills as well, which will bring about an increase of intimacy in all areas by addressing and healing from attachment wounds and core issues.

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”
