A main focus of my therapy is joining clients in what they are going through. Therapeutic workbooks are great… but… there is a big difference in opening up to a workbook versus opening up to a human being. When we open up to another person we make ourselves vulnerable. That is when true growth begins. Books are great tools, but I look to help people recover on a much deeper level. I set out to try and help people deal with their core issues, as well as enhance their core strengths. When there is recovery in the core, the symptoms can be dealt with. Our problematic situations and behaviors are but a symptom. I am a devout believer in recovery, for I have experienced it myself!
