Are you ready to take a personal look at your relationships?
Do you know that something must change in your relationship, but you can’t put your finger on it?
Do you want to learn better communication skills so that you are no longer misunderstood?
Do you want to gain some clarity about your relationship before you make your next move?
Intimate relationships can be a source of great strength and satisfaction, but when they are a struggle, they can lead to deep despair and helplessness. Often times, it can be difficult to pinpoint the exact reason or moment when your feelings soured, yet you know that you have been deeply unhappy for a long time.
Whether you wish to remain in your committed relationship but know something must change, are tempted into an affair, or have recently begun the process of separation/divorce, your current circumstances do not have to stop you from creating more satisfying relationships.
With individual relationship therapy you can gain insight into the patterns that have engendered the negative dynamics with your partner/ex-partner to forge a path forward where you feel empowered and solid with your place within romantic relationships.
MAKING YOUR RELATIONSHIPS BETTER STARTS WITH YOU
Individual relationship therapy is the primary way through which you can begin to uncover the underlying vulnerabilities that have sealed you off from your deepest needs and desires.
WHETHER YOU ARE DISENCHANTED WITH YOUR relationship or TRYING TO GET OVER A BREAK-UP, I CAN HELP YOU WORK THROUGH THIS COMPLICATED AND EMOTIONALLY CHARGED PERIOD TO FIGURE OUT WHAT YOU REALLY WANT FROM ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIPS.
I have successfully worked with countless individuals by providing them with the guidance, process, and emotional space needed to truly understand what informs their behaviors and internal dialogue when they are in intimate relationships. Our sessions will be driven by the ultimate goal of getting you to a place where you can finally find emotional intimacy without fear and claim your authentic voice.
YOU MAY STILL HAVE QUESTIONS… HERE ARE SOME COMMON ONES:
“How will anything change with my marriage if I’m that only one going to therapy?”
As the saying goes, it takes two to tango. But change requires at least one of you to gain insight and take new steps in the dance that perpetuated disconnection – what your moves in the dance? Where did they come from? What can you start doing differently? Even in couples therapy, it’s the small shifts in one partner’s sense of self and perceptions that begin to turn things around. Because I have worked successfully with many partners, I am able to reflect back to you what may be going on for yours while helping you clarify your experiences within marital/romantic dynamics.
“What will we focus on during our individual sessions?”
The main objectives of individual relationship therapy are to:
— gain clarity about what you want from your relationship or marriage.
— learning effective communication skills in order to convey your desires in a way that they can be responded to.
— defining healthy boundaries, which allow for better engagement with your partner, as well as building your resiliency in relationship.
“I’m afraid that if I start talking about my relationship/marital unhappiness in therapy, it will mean my marriage is doomed?”
When we are alone with your thoughts and feelings (without a trained specialist to help us sort through which are stories we tell ourselves and which are the heart of our pain_. we can go down an intractable rabbit hole. Individual relationship therapy will provide you with the clarity you need and shed light on your inner longings, as well as the patterns from past relationships that have carried over into this one. Together we will clear a path of reclaiming your voice in relationships in order to feel truly content in them.
“We’ve already decided to separate/divorce, what’s the point of revisiting the relationship that broke my heart?”
Going through a separation/divorce can be one of the most difficult experiences. You want to just be able to accept and move on, but if you do not process your pain and the loss of the relationship that you are leaving behind, invariably, history will repeat itself or you will always carry an armor that will prevent you from being in the loving relationships you deserve. Our sessions won’t be about taking things apart, they will focus on fostering resilience in order to move forward, while having a clear understanding of what you want from your next relationship based on what you’ve learned from past mistakes.
