"Man" is a social being. Social support is key to emotional well-being. Sometimes power-struggles, frustration, judgment, jealousy and an inability to say ‘no’ interfere with your relationships. Learn to identify your own values, set boundaries, communicate effectively and tolerate differences.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a psychotherapy that helps the brain reprocess painful experiences in a natural way. Painful feelings show up in our reactions and interactions with others when pre-existing memories and traumas have not been resolved. EMDR heals old patterns faster than traditional talk therapy, and can be used in conjunction with other therapies as the client chooses. Click here for more information on EMDR.
