Healing Power of Psychotherapy Rests in Harmony

harmony butterfly

Hurting, frightened and courageous people come to my psychotherapy practice to find relief from emotional pain. They don't want to binge or starve or throw up any more.

They come to find support in their judgmental thinking about real and perceived abusers in their lives, now or in the past.
