Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I’ve heard a lot of stories with pain and joy, and a lot of ending. One person’s trauma is not another’s, but it can be just as devastating. Outside support and understanding might be called for. People feeling guilty, and distressed, and cranky, over the memories can get stuck, and this gets compounded by the unpredictability of their lives.

Improving emotional closeness, communication, problem-solving, and coping skills, and working through your traumas—your stories—for new possibilities and more choices, is something I would like to help you with.

I always say, “In order to cross the ocean, you have to lose sight of the shore, and sometimes that boat can get mighty rocky before it sails into smooth waters.”

It helps to have hope.

By learning to limit the destructive patterns, and working through the traumas, you can begin to enrich your daily life with successful experiences.
