Marriage and Family Therapist
We all have the innate ability to find peace. But sometimes, our path has been blocked by societal norms, childhood beliefs, and defenses caused by painful experiences. Negative feelings, such as anger, anxiety, and depression are roadblocks to peace. Since we do not like negative feelings, we try to get as far away from them as possible. But to have peace, we must confront our roadblocks….
Through out life we experience different feelings, such as overwhelm, burden, anger etc. Finding the cause of these feelings can be the first step to resolving relationships and conflict.

Relationships are not easy but we all need them. Put some effort into this and enjoy more meaningful relationships. Learn to focus on the goals of the relationship instead of the problem. Focus on what is working and encouraging your loved one to do more of that and focusing on what the s desires, not what s/he doesn’t like. This approach is good for communication improvement as well as parenting and relationship issues.
Do you feel overwhelmed, fatigued, unmotivated, or irritated? Depression and anxiety can feel like a heavy burden. Allow me to teach you some tools to decrease these negative feelings. Learn to focus your attention on external thoughts instead of internal. When we change our focus and awareness externally and on others, our depression decreases.
