Relationship Issues

We are hardwired for connection and belonging. 

Stable relationships give us the courage to go for our dreams. 

Many of us have experienced hurt as a part of our relationships. 

These old hurts can show up in the here and now and block us from the love and connection we desire, the connection that provides the stability to thrive.

You may need relational repair work if you connect with any of the following statements or questions. 

  • I want more fulfilling relationships.
  • I have trouble taking in support from others. 
  • I struggle with feeling lonely and/or isolated.
  • Why do I keep choosing the wrong people?
  • I feel stuck in my relationship.
  • I often prioritize the needs of others over my own. 
  • I have difficulty trusting that I can be in a loving, committed relationship. 
  • I want to make my parents proud but my dreams aren’t their dreams. 

Why you should seek help and how therapy can help you

Intimacy often triggers our past pain and it gets played out in today’s relationships. 

The fear that we bring to intimate relationships can make sustaining deep connections difficult.

We can transform relational conflicts into opportunities for discovery and healing. 

By seeking out help you are investing in your present and your future by breaking the cycle of relational pain. 

You’ll know you’re ready for the love of your life when you’ve become the person you’d like to be with.
