I am a Licensed Teacher turned Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who specializes in counseling high conflict families, couples, adolescents, and individuals who are ready to embrace a strong sense of self in order to improve their relationships. This is a process that must occur prior to increasing the emotional bond with others and includes identifying what you want, taking responsibility for articulating what you want and need, taking ownership for your contribution to the problem, and increasing the capacity to accept and tolerate differences.
However, before you can understand someone else, you must know who you are and what you need. Learning how to listen to your gut and having the courage to follow where it leads enables you to get the life you want and deserve, and you deserve to live your best life.
Knowing what makes you tick lays the groundwork to help you achieve your authentic life. Within each person there is passion. Failing to recognize what that passion is and use it denies a key part of who you are. It impacts everything: relationships, partner choices, and how you spend your time. Sometimes you need help learning how to recognize what you know instinctively.
