Navigating life can sometimes leave you feeling exhausted, overwhelmed, and afraid. You may feel like you are stuck in a rut, at a crossroad in life, or simply lost, and no matter how hard you try, it never seems to be enough. While you can’t always control all that happens in life, you can learn to control how you respond and how you show up.
By being here, you’ve already taken a big step into your journey of self-discovery, healing, and personal growth. You are on your way to having the life you aspire to. Understandably, this journey can often be difficult to navigate on your own, and this is where individual therapy can help. I work with clients who want to take ownership of their lives, develop deeper self-awareness, process unhealed trauma, learn effective strategies to self-regulate, and successfully navigate through the obstacles that are holding them back from living the life they desire.
Romantic relationships are one of the most important and rewarding connections we have in our lives, but they can also be the most demanding. They often progress in ways we don’t expect, leaving us feeling frustrated, hurt, and disconnected.
You may be at a place in your relationship where you are constantly in conflict, feeling emotionally frustrated, sexually dissatisfied, or avoiding conflict to the point where you barely talk. We often walk into a potentially healthy relationship at a great disadvantage. Many of us were never taught the critical skills needed to maintain healthy and successful relationships.
Proactive Couples Therapy
Are you in a new relationship that looks very promising or an older one with new problems? Maybe you are worried that disagreements are inevitable, and you’re afraid you don’t have the skills to manage them, or maybe you had your first disagreement, and it felt unsettling. You want to make sure that history doesn’t repeat itself and want to learn how to create a healthy, thriving relationship together.
Couples often wonder why they are drifting apart after the honeymoon phase slowly fades. Growing up, many of us didn’t learn the critical skills needed to maintain healthy and successful relationships. As adults, this then shows up in our most intimate connections.
As time passes and the relationship progresses, we naturally reveal more of ourselves to each other and often struggle to define our wants and needs. Without the proper skills to navigate and accept our differences, we may start to resent each other, fight more often and risk losing our connection.
