REBUILDING and ENRICHING RELATIONSHIPS
People often ask, "How can I fix my relationship?" Or "How can I get him or her to put me before friends?" They want to feel more valued, argue less, communicate better, and enjoy their time together more.
Relationships can be some of the most important and rewarding aspects of life. From birth, humans need to feel seen, accepted, and comforted. But, it is sometimes in our most valued relationships that fear, pain, and isolation develop.
Negative thoughts and feelings can take over, making it hard for couples to sort out a way forward. It may be hard for you to know where the troubles started. A cycle of blaming and trying to find the bad guy starts. Hurtful words, arguing, withdrawing, or feeling alone or in pain begin to erode your sense hopefullness about the future.
If you're yearning to feel closer and able to share your joys and fears with your partner, but you don't know how to get there, it may be time to do something different.
Breaking the negative pattern is difficult on your own and it can help to talk with someone impartial. In couples therapy, we can work together to help you and your partner communicate better and bring back trust and closeness. You can stop seeing each other as the problem and begin see your negative patterns as your relationship's enemy.
You can build the relationship that you long for, where empathy and understanding replace blaming. Your focus can turn from your partners flaws to looking at your own fears and longings, and from feeling isolated to connected.
Your relationship is unique, so I will use my experience, education and expertise to tailor therapy to your specific needs. If you are ready for change now and want more information about therapy, please contact me for a free 20-minute consultation or to schedule an appointment. I am happy to answer your questions and explore whether I am the right therapist for you. The benefits of therapy can usually be felt early on in treatment and the changes brought about can be lasting.
Counseling for Co-Parenting
Co-parenting divorced or separated couples can also benefit from therapy. Equally important, children who are co-parented by parents able to cooperate and role model appropriate and supportive behavior, benefit from that more healthy environment.
