Therapy for individuals and couples who want more joy and connection in their lives.
You grew up in a conservative culture that prevented you from expressing your authentic self. Maybe you were part of a religious group who cared more about controlling your behavior than promoting love in the world. Or maybe you had a parent who made things all about them, all the time, and you had to walk on eggshells.
You were told what to think or feel- it wasn't safe to express your truth. Other people or groups sent the message that there was something wrong with you, and you internalized that sense of self-doubt, fear and shame.
All of this impacts how you show up in your life and in your relationships. you may be extra sensitive to percived rejection, or easily get defensive. little disagreements with your partner can ruin your whole night.
It takes work to heal, but if you're willing to go there, you can deepen your relationships with yourself and others and start showing up fully in your life.
It's hard to live a meaningful life in this crazy, broken world, but it's also the only thing worth doing...and it is possible.
Reconnect with yourself, each other, and the good earth we live on.
