You Deserve to be Happy in Your Relationships
Are you looking for a relationship but wonder what you need to do to find love, fulfillment and intimacy? Finding a nurturing, satisfying relationship can be difficult. You may not know what you want or how to start figuring it out. Or, perhaps you already are involved with someone and feel increasingly dissatisfied, lonely, and unsure of how to improve your relationship with your partner, or even if you should try to make it work. Whether you are single or partnered, you may know that you are unhappy but are unsure of where to start.
Everyone Struggles With Relationships in One Way or Another
Humans are social beings, and we look to others for love and connection. It is very common to feel lonely, confused and unsure of how to form healthy relationships. Patterns of relating develop when we are young and often create stumbling blocks that make it difficult to have healthy adult relationships. Thankfully, with the help of an experienced, compassionate therapist, you can begin to form the type of relationships you really want in your life.
Finding meaning in life is filled with so many choices today. If you are questioning your sexuality, sexual desires and/or gender identity, you may worry that something is wrong with you and fear that your ideal relationship doesn’t exist. Talking to someone who can understand you and offer support and guidance as you work to build a relationship that will work for you can be very reassuring and helpful.
Through Relationship Counseling, You Can Create Healthy Connections
During relationship counseling, you will gain insight into the stumbling blocks and insecurities that are getting in the way of you achieving what you are looking for in a relationship. As you gain awareness of your situation and how you approach challenges, you can feel empowered to distinguish between unhealthy and healthy decisions. I will help you develop new ways to communicate clearly with the people in your life so that you can create the happiest relationships possible. Whether you engage in monogamous, open or polyamorous relationships, communication is key to a lasting connection.
Relationship counseling can offer you the chance to feel heard, respected and understood. As a compassionate, nonjudgmental therapist who thinks outside of the box, I will listen to you without any preconceived ideas about what your relationship should look like. I can help you think more clearly and confidently about what you want from your relationships and your life.
You can break out of old patterns and build rewarding relationships. Despite all of the pain, unhappiness and anxiety you may be experiencing, there is hope for a fulfilling romantic life. Change can be frightening and hard, but staying stuck in unhappiness is even harder. Relationship counseling can help you recognize that your feelings are valid, and you have a choice in your future.
You may believe that relationship counseling can help you identify the kind of relationships you want, but still have questions or concerns…
My past and my desires are too hard to talk about. I’m ashamed and afraid that you will judge me.
I approach my practice with empathy and understanding. I will never judge you for any issue you may have with communication or intimacy with your partner. I work with clients in traditional and non-traditional relationships, and all orientations, gender identities and relationship configurations. You can feel safe to discuss anything and everything. As you share with me, I can help you stop judging yourself.
I am afraid of being vulnerable during relationship counseling.
In sessions, we will work at your pace, and you won’t be forced to discuss anything that makes you uncomfortable. I can help you sift through any fear and confusion so that you can create the life you want.
You don’t have to feel alone anymore. I invite you to call for a free, 15-minute phone consultation to ask any questions you have about relationship counseling and my practice.
