Transform Emotional Pain into Power Guided by Love!

Empathy Push Pull: Ambivalence

Ambivalence is a conflicting urge to go in opposite directions, either simultaneously or alternately. Self-empathy recognizes feelings to move forward and hesitation for safety. Progress requires letting go of lessons that helped survival, yet now cause problems. Ambivalence reveals strength that imagines both stability and progress. Healing relationships help resolve ambivalence through acceptance of the person, optimism, and uninterrupted safety.


Relationships: Illusion

You are ready to move forward!

Individual Counseling and Relationship Counseling each provide a safe environment for you to talk about things that matter.

We build on your strengths to achieve personal growth.

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy

Individual Therapy and Relationship Therapy are for adults coping with anxiety, depression, relationship problems, past trauma, as well as grief. You have benefited from prior efforts, and you want to address matters that reappear.
