RELATIONSHIP PSYCHOTHERAPY

Finding shared meaning, defining common values, having intentional conversations and relating to others’ experiences takes intentional work. I want to support you as you build habits for a healthy, happy, thriving relationships. When most people hear about relationship counseling, they often think that this work is exclusive for couples or people in romantic relationships. However, people can benefit greatly from exploring their adult relationships beyond their romantic partners.

RELATIONAL ISSUES MAY SOUND LIKE:

  • We just got engaged and want to invest time in creating a shared vision. We want to explore our family histories and are excited about creating our own memories. 

  • Money, money, money. We never figured out how to manage our finances together.

  • It might be an affair. How could they have done this to me? How do I trust them again?

  • You are having a hard time conceiving and you’re the non-carrying parent and feel helpless. You dream about growing  a baby in your belly and feel angry at your body for not doing what it’s supposed to do.

  • We just don’t know how to talk, it always ends up in an argument. I feel unheard and misunderstood.

  • Maybe it’s the kids.  You want them in your bed, co-sleeping “they’re so little, growing too fast” and she wants them to sleep in their own beds.

  • It might be the sex or maybe you’re sexually attracted to someone else. Desire slows down. Sex dwindles. Maybe it’s boring. Maybe you’d like to explore a more open relationship, bring in a new partner or explore new things.

  • You don’t even say goodnight anymore. We are growing apart, we hardly talk. Are we still attracted to one another? 

  • We have decided to get a divorce and would like to move forward in a healthy and positive manner.

  • Family estrangement and poor communication. Overbearing or critical parents. Feeling invisible or unimportant.
