I have many years of experience and have been active in mental health treatment and personal growth since 1982. I have another sort of qualification you should consider: I will not think of you as a person to be “fixed” from something, but rather a fellow human on your own voyage of discovery and growth. I will share the tools I know and the insights I have, knowing that all healing is, ultimately, self-healing. You will do the work, and I will be there for you.  I believe in any situation you have the ability to influence things to be better or to be worse. You have an inner self that you can access and work with, to make life what you want it to be. At the deepest level, you are whole, perfect and complete right now. Healing is about reconnecting with this truth about yourself.
