You might be visiting my page because something upsetting has recently happened in your relationship. If you’re a couple it might be a blow out fight or the discovery of an affair.
This “big event” might be illuminating feelings that you have of dissatisfaction and disconnect on a larger scale in your life. Maybe the fight with your spouse is bringing up past resentments or a lack of overall intimate connection.
You might find yourself feeling lonely or disconnected from the people that really matter. Or perhaps you find it hard to create new connections with friends, intimate partners or even coworkers.
I guide couples to better understand what is blocking their ability to connect deeply and to become more honest and open and less afraid, overwhelmed, or shut down.
As your therapist,I will support you in gaining insight into why you have developed your particular relationship style. Sometimes in the midst of everyday stresses and challenges, we fall into patterns of relating to other that becomes fixed and unhealthy. We might uncover that your experiences have made you worried, not confident, or fearful. Perhaps distressing experiences have encouraged you to create walls to protect yourself. I want to help you gain an understanding that this was all created out of necessity at some point in your life in order to cope. And then I want to help you make the changes you need in order to change those patterns while experiencing the relationship you desire.
