What lies behind the half-smiles and the obligatory events you attend together? Perhaps you made the kids the singular focus of the family unit in order to justify staying together. Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured. Living on autopilot simply because you think there is no other option can be mentally exhausting. A trained therapist can skillfully challenge each partner to recognize their negative cycle and personal baggage. What happens next is one for the books...an aha moment and a desire to break the cycle and start anew.
I help partners identify goals they need to work on in order to create their ideal relationship. I hold each partner accountable for their part in creating and maintaining a flourishing relationship. I am not only your therapist, I am your coach and your educator. I cheer loudest for the underdogs, the relationships that get discounted the most.
It is not an easy decision to join your partner and open up to a complete stranger about your most vulnerable moments. Who knows what will come out of the other partner's mouth. What you do know is that you owe it to yourself to try and work through the discomfort and find joy again. Contact me today for a free 15-minute video consultation.
