Most people come to therapy because their relationships are spiraling out of control in some inexplicable way. This is particularly true with significant others, be it spouse, live-in partner or similar relationship. We are convinced of one of two things. “If only he/she would change or fix something about him or herself then everything would be smooth sailing.” Or, “there’s definitely something wrong with me or my life would be better.” The reality is that neither of those explanations are correct. The responsibility belongs to the couple not just one person.
Your life is also filled with other relationships, including your children, parents, friends or boss. In balancing these it is important not to sacrifice you own needs. Being able to discuss difficult subjects such as sex, money, children and boundaries can present challenges. Find out how to treat others with love and appreciation and receive the same in return. Learn the strange signals of teenagers and become their parent and not their buddy.
Together, we will tackle how important it is to have a positive understanding of yourself to improve your relationship with others. I will show you ways to communicate with the ones you love in our fast-paced world without losing yourself. I will help you discover what you and your relationships have in common so you can learn to manage and enrich the feelings that accompany your deepest connections.
