I enjoy working with clients who find themselves repeating negative behaviors that seem out of their control. For example, one might find themselves over reacting in certain situations, or find themselves repeatedly dating abusive partners. Together we look at where these patterns originated and untangle the past from the present. The client becomes less driven by automatic reactions and is freer to choose how they will respond.
I have significant experience helping clients who have been hurt by the Church. Faith communities can unintentionally wound people in many subtle and not-so-subtle ways. I provide a safe space to work through the grief and pain that this can evoke.
