There is more to individual therapy than having someone listen to you. I will provide you with some clear feedback and together we will design a plan for tackling your difficulties. While you might be aware of your own self-defeating patterns, breaking free of them requires more. I can help you connect with emotions that have previously inhibited your growth. You will discover that your demons stop chasing you because now you are chasing them! At that point, real change and emotional freedom becomes possible.
