Do you feel alone in your relationship?
Are you always arguing or bickering?
Do you feel unheard or misunderstood?
Has the emotional & physical intimacy you once had with your partner fallen by the wayside?
Do you wonder why the smallest things turn into such a big deal?
Have you forgotten what attracted you to your partner in the first place?
Does the daily grind get in the way, making you feel more like roommates than lovers? Has communication become strained or stopped altogether?
If there has been an affair, are you wondering if you can repair your connection, or it means the end of your relationship?
Many of the couples I treat answered “yes” to some or all of these questions. We all share the basic need for true connection with others, especially our partners. People who run into difficulty making and maintaining connections most often were never taught how, or are unfamiliar with the origins of their own communication style.
Couples come to me when they are feeling hopeless, lost, angry, disconnected, and sad. If this sounds like you, trust there is hope. If you’ve tried individual therapy for your relationship and it hasn’t worked, know that most individual therapy promotes individual empowerment rather than empowering your relationship. With my integrative approach, I’m able to help couples who have been to individual and/or couples’ therapy already without results.
As a licensed psychologist using a telehealth platform, I will work with you and your partner to hone in on the patterns that have disrupted your intimacy and caused you pain. We’ll discover why you do what you do and how to do it differently so you can once again create the relationship you fell in love with.
Why Relational Life Therapy?
I have a practice rooted in Terry Real’s Relational Life Therapy. Rather than listening and validating, I’ll directly teach you new skills for relating to yourself and your significant other from day one.
Relational Life Therapy quickly gets to the heart of the matter through detailed examination of your current relationship and your family of origin. We’ll discover the relationship skills you learned early on that cause you difficulty and dissatisfaction. Our sessions provide a forum for “joining through the truth,” as Terry Real says.
Doing this work will bring you a deeper sense of awareness that allows for a more connected, healthy way of life. You’ll develop an outlook that is cherishing and loving – personally and towards each other – that will carry over into all areas of your lives.
