Our therapists understand the difficulties and pain that come with relationship struggles. No one wants to feel isolated or unloved. With help you can understand the things that are preventing you from having meaningful connections.
In therapy, we will help you explore your personality, your temperament, your values, your emotions and needs, and your common relationship themes. You may discover a learned habit, misguided belief, or harmful pattern that negatively affects your current or potential relationships. Then, we can empower you to replace those habits and beliefs with positive ones. You can begin to notice what triggers your fear, irritation, or anger in an interaction, and you will learn to navigate those emotional reactions. You can’t change the people around you. But, you can make healthy changes in yourself that can reduce conflict and increase connection. You will be able to change the things that you can and stop focusing on others and what they should do.
Relationship counseling can also help you better understand your attachment styles and your ability to set healthy boundaries with your family, friends, coworkers, and partner. Some people feel very safe in some situations and very threatened in others. Sometimes, it is particular people that cause us to feel unsafe. When you feel threatened or insecure, it can be difficult to put yourself. But, counseling can help you develop skills that will boost your sense of security and self-confidence.
Everyone struggles with relationship issues at one time or another. No one communicates perfectly all the time. But, relationship therapy can help you develop ways to actively listen to others and express your needs so that they are heard and understood. With self-acceptance and compassion, you can begin to deepen the relationships that are important for you to.
