How do you know when it is time to seek help?
When you find yourself going through the same hurtful patterns, with the same conclusions. Couples may be arguing, bickering, and constantly triggering each other, or they may be disconnected, feeling alone, and barely speaking. The common thread in couples seeking therapy is that their relationship is no longer a safe, loving, and enjoyable space. Often times, couples wait too long before seeking help. Anger and resentment could be building for years, destroying connection, safety, and love, which needs to be the foundation for the relationship. As soon as couples, married and unmarried, find themselves in patterns that they cannot break, therapy can be extremely helpful. The longer you wait, the more anger and resentment can build. Come in. I can identify where you struggle and break those patterns before they cause irreversible damage. I help couples restore the strength and vitality their relationship once had, and show them how to create a conscious partnership focused on valuing one other’s experience. I help deepen the emotional connection, restore intimacy, and show couples how to become responsive to their partner’s needs and wants.
