Wm. John Gass, MSW, LICSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Olympia
You want to be understood. You want to understand. But, conversations quickly become battles. Reacting, defending, and attacking...become the ebb and flow. Hurt, frustration, anger, isolation, and rejection...become the landscape. In your mind you're hearing "it's happening again", "this is like...", "I hate this!"
We'll look at the habits and behaviors that keep showing up, that shift you away from communication, toward confrontation. You'll see how those behaviors and habits have been trying to protect you from further pain. You'll learn new ways to stay in the present moment, to focus on what is being communicated...
I love working with people to help them leave their battles, to be able to connect with others, and themselves, in ways that lead to understanding and being understood. Contact me to schedule a consultation. Let's start your journey toward peace and balance, understanding and connection. I'm looking forward to meeting you.
