When adults struggle with emotional pain or relationship difficulties it often has roots in unresolved childhood experiences. For example, if there was abuse, neglect, or loss in your early life it probably has lasting effects on how you feel and live. Even if you didn’t experience, or don’t remember, a specific traumatic event, you may still have lingering feelings of hurt, anger, or shame stemming from your formative years.
Therapy that addresses these issues can change one’s life. A skilled therapist, who has been through the process themselves, can help you face emotions, beliefs, and memories that are at the root of what you are struggling with. Healing your inner child allows you to rediscover your authentic self and live a more empowered and fulfilling life.
My approach to this work is tailored to each individual client and is respectful of your pace and comfort level. I provide gentle encouragement for you to connect with your feelings and increase your self-awareness, while working against the shame and self-criticism that interferes with the healing process.
