Have you thought to yourself, "I want to feel better." but are unsure how to get there? Many of us have experienced trauma in our lives. There are many types of trauma, including sexual or emotional abuse, natural disasters, and car accidents.
There is also another type of invisible trauma that many have experienced from their school, place of employment, friends, and even family that makes you feel bad about yourself. This type of trauma happens when the negative messages received from our environment turn into messages that we now tell ourselves, like “I’m the problem or I’m worthless, and no one will ever love me.”

I can help you find the answers as you work with your partner to reach your healthy relationship goals.
