Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
So many people I see are trying to stabilize from overwhelming loss—from separation or divorce or inability to sustain relationships. They feel huge disappointment and panic, having not learned to withstand the pain or free themselves from old constraints. They feel incapable of tolerating intense feelings, adjusting to change, and building a rewarding, happy life. My job is to inspire self-acceptance and support risk taking. I encourage self-affirmation and freedom from perceived limitations. The goal of my work is to help each person discover a whole and complete life, not bound by past or present circumstances.
