Growing up is a hard job. We can't help but experience pain along the way. We learn to cope...to deal with the pain in any
way we can. Whatever we learn to do to protect ourselves as kids keeps us safe, as we do our best to get our needs met.
We either fight, withdraw, hide, freeze, submit, or freak out. We continue to use these defenses as adults, when we don't
feel safe. They only serve to keep us feeling alone and disconnected from others. So we need to learn about our ways of
coping, and begin to communicate in a way that frees us from the reactive behaviors of the past.
I use many avenues to facilitate this awareness, and to guide you to reclaim the whole, expressive, free being that you are.
I used the "we" pronoun intentionally here. I continue to go through my own life journey, and as I've come through different
layers, I've come to value and respect my own journey......and most certainly yours. We're all in this together...this healing
adventure toward creating loving relationships with ourselves and others.
