We must bake our cake with truths of our past,love for today and forgiveness: the ICING will then STICK.
Most clients that see me have poor self-esteem,sometimes depression and difficulty respecting,loving and living with THEMSELVES.They choose partners who are SIMILAR but don't realize it. They believe 1+1=1 instead of 2.They dance the dance where they only feel good if their partners feel, think and voice the same thoughts and feelings. Looking at the positive and negative tapes that you carry and reparenting yourself, will allow you to enjoy the SWEET ICING that others wish to spread.
I work with individuals, couples and groups and offer hourly and 1-4 day intensives. I work with codependents, ACOA and persons with addictions. I PRIMARILY help people who are interested in gaining skills to deal with any relationship in a positive, healthy way. I give them the TOOLS to learn how to LOVE AND RESPECT themselves so they, too, can spread the ICING to people who are meaningful.
I have been in practice over 30 years and feel that "I practice what I preach".Through my own recovery, I have learned to continually work on myself so I can be a role model to my clients, children and grandchildren. That does not mean I don't make mistakes. We are HUMAN.I stress the importance of LIVING LIFE IN THE GREY, instead of the black or white.
