About Me

Hi, and welcome to my "about me" page!  I try to be an open book for my clients.  If I think my own life stories may benefit a client, I will usually ask a client if they are comfortable with me sharing a bit about myself.  I can certainly relate to those born in dysfunctional families, and who have chosen dysfunctional relationships.  We often choose relationships that subconsciously remind us of past relationships, usually from our families.  Often, until we resolve our childhood experiences, we are doomed to repeat these experiences, with the same or with new people.  The phrase, "we are doomed to repeat history until we learn it" often rings true for my clients and for myself.
