Personal statements:

I believe that most personal unhappiness and conflicts with other people come from behaviors and thoughts that were useful at one time in a person’s life to protect them from hurt, but now limit the person from achieving full potential and fulfillment. I believe that past hurts need to be grieved and expressed in constructive ways. I also believe that spirituality is an important aid to healing, and I work within a client’s own spiritual values to find greater peace.
