Whether you are single, dating, married or contemplating separation, having a good strong foundation and understanding of your needs is crucial. Relationship counseling can help to address the things that get in the way of a healthy relationship such as:
- Poor boundaries
- Communication skills
- Security and confidence in the relationship
- Past relationship trauma
Do you find yourself feeling confused, dissatisfied or insecure in your relationship? Do you ever wonder why your relationships end prematurely or why you are sabotaging something great? Most of us want a relationship in which we can communicate openly and effectively, feel secure and accepted, and allow our walls to come down without our “baggage” getting in the way. Having this kind of ideal relationship is tough and even in the strongest of partnerships, we sometimes struggle.
How Relationship Counseling Can Help
You might be hesitant about coming in to see a relationship counselor and wonder how talking to a stranger could help. After all, counseling is an investment of time, energy, and resources. It can be very helpful to work with an objective person who can both support you and help create insight through honestly addressing your stuck places. Often times, we are unaware of our relational patterns and unhealthy attachment styles which can impact our ability to connect. I strive to create a safe and accepting place where you are comfortable to share and be heard. Once this is accomplished, I work with individuals to help them learn skills to be more effective and understand their current relationship dynamics. I also encourage self-reflection and promote the saying that “you must love yourself before you can love others.” My goal is to provide a safe therapeutic space where ever you are comfortable to share and be heard.
