I believe that everyone has a story to tell
and we can only share our story with people we feel comfortable with and trust. So that is where we start. I listen. All you need to do is show up to the appointment, tell your story, be interested in yourself and trust the process.
After we meet, we will decide if we are a good fit to do this work together.

Hello! I’m Jeri
California, San Diego/La Mesa Area
Everything we have learned as a child came from family, friends or school. If we grew up in a chaotic family, chances are we missed out on some things that are essential to navigating the world in a healthy way as an adult. Growing up with emotionally immature parents means we probably aren’t comfortable with emotional intimacy and might feel emotionally lonely. If we know the cause of why we feel lonely, work through it together, and can learn to fulfill these basic human needs, we won’t repeat the past.
Being raised by an immature parent means that we either became overly self-sacrificing and resentful or blame others for everything in life. This was our coping style to help us survive but it’s just not working anymore.
I am passionate about helping you to improve your life. I will work with you to break down your struggles, find your strengths, your values, and help you live your life with confidence.
