Expertise in Relationships
Many people find themselves repeating the same cycles in relationships. Whether you experience repetitive conflicts with your partner or similar problems across multiple relationships, I may be able to help you break the cycle.
Therapy may be able to help you improve your ability to communicate and to work through conflicts with significant others. This may include conflicts with a partner or spouse such as insecurity, jealousy, controlling behaviors, or infidelity; conflicts with your family of origin that stem from childhood and have yet to be resolved; or difficulties sustaining cooperative relationships with friends or colleagues.
I often work with people who find themselves too involved or dependent on others. I may be able to help you establish clearer boundaries between yourself and others.
I also work with people who experience loneliness and feel uncertain how to improve their social life. I may be able to help you develop your social skills and learn how to become close to others so that you may achieve the satisfaction in relationships that you long for.
I specialize in therapy that focuses on helping you understand how your concerns developed and increasing your awareness of ways you may unknowingly repeat unhealthy patterns that you learned early in life.
Therapy itself is a unique kind of relationship, and the attention that you and I may pay to the ways that we work together may help you discover new ways of relating to others in your life.
Our work may allow you greater freedom from what your past has taught you about relationships, and thus greater choice in how you live today. Depending on your preferences and needs, you and I may decide to work together briefly to get through a current challenge or longer-term to resolve longstanding difficulties and achieve lasting results.
