If this sounds like you, glad you're here.
I get it. I've been there too. My name is Joanne, and I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (#110804) whose mission is to help people with painful relationships and difficult emotions connect more deeply to others and to themselves than ever before.
Here's the neat thing: the very fact that you are reading this is a good sign, because it means that you still have hope that things can change. And they can.
You may not know WHY you keep finding yourself in the same kinds of experiences or HOW to heal and grow. That's okay! These are the only three things you need:
the CURIOSITY to observe and ask lots of questions without judgment
the COMPASSION to give yourself a break and find out what you need
the COURAGE to try something new and unfamiliar
With these, you can create fulfilling, lasting relationships full of joy, love, and meaning. It takes hard work, but it's definitely within your reach! I'll walk with you so that you aren't lost and alone.
