Relationship issues are the core of what I intend to address through our services. We all live in community and are hard-wired for connection when those connections are not operating optimally it may cause significant distress and impact our ability to function in different areas of life.
Relationship issues can be some of the most distressing issues any person can experience. We seek our most basic needs of connection and safety in relationships. Research shows that couples that engage in frequent high-conflict situations experience an increased incidence of health issues. When those significant relationships are not going "well," they can feel stressful, dissatisfying, and unsafe. We often wonder if there is hope; this can often cause emotional and even physical issues for any person. You may find yourself with feelings of being "stuck," hopeless, and/or helpless.
From an individual therapy perspective, I consider the client part of their systems and how the issues they encounter may cause them to feel lonely, unloved, disconnected, dissatisfied, hopeless, and/or helpless. Even if their loved ones are absent, we look at assisting you in finding ways to heal yourself and improve all areas of life.
Understanding what affects us as individuals or together gives us increased insight into our parts and our dynamics. Working on our part creates opportunities for healthy connections with those we care about.If you are feeling depressed, anxious, or dissatisfied with your relationship, there is hope. There is something that you may still need to consider trying. Something that can help you feel better and allow the healing of those significant relationships.Counseling can enable you to do the work individually or with your partner.
Couples therapy usually addresses communication, conflict, trust, betrayal, emotional disconnection, unresolved distressing events, and trauma.
Relational issues can be complexity is usually due to deeper issues that we may not be able to recognize yet. As a therapist. I am passionate about learning to understand our stories and how they influence how we connect with others. Unpacking this and finding ways to resource those underdeveloped areas for us, we become healthier, grounded, and able to relate to others in a more satisfying, safe, and enjoyable manner than before.
If you are ready to give the process a chance, contact us, and we will be happy to assist you.
