You can work with Sherry to:
recognize and stop repeating childhood patterns that keep you stuck and unhappy.
build your ego and learn to love yourself. The most important relationship you’ll ever have is with yourself.
recognize your defenses (i.e.: isolating, using addictive behavior to keep from feeling emotions) and work to stop them from controlling your life
stop blaming your partner for all your problems and “own” your life.
move from a relationship fueled by anger and ruts to one filled with empathy, true communication and love.
