Dating & Relationships
Live your Best Life
Do any of these statements resonate with you?
You have difficulty expressing yourself in relationships.
You believe that you have work to do on yourself before getting into another relationship.
You avoid relationships due to fear of getting hurt.
You didn't expect to get to this age without being married or having a family.
You were ghosted, broken up with, or breadcrumbed once again. It hurts, and you are trying to make sense of what went wrong. You think this is confirmation that you are unlovable. You may still fantasize about a future with this person. You are afraid that you will forever be alone.
You feel anxious or insecure in your romantic partnership and are overthinking EVERYTHING. Your relationship occupies your thoughts. You think your partner is pulling back due to waning interest, and you are terrified.
You are questioning whether to stay or leave your relationship. You aren’t sure if this is the right partner for you, but you also can’t imagine hurting the person or saying goodbye. Or perhaps you know that you want to leave the relationship but aren’t sure how to do so.
Therapy for dating and relationships
Whether you are in a relationship that is not working, or you are currently searching for someone you can connect to and trust, creating and maintaining relationships can be very difficult.
Struggling with dating and spending time alone because you can’t find the “one”, or having problems in your relationship, can force you to really take a hard look at yourself. Are you settling for something that doesn’t feel right? Why? Are you saying no to all of your options because no one you’ve met feels safe or right for you? Again, why?
Therapy is a relationship that is designed to help you discover insights about yourself within the context of a safe and nurturing environment. In therapy, we can work together to find and heal the underlying issues that are preventing you from enjoying life in the moment, whether you are dating, searching, or in a relationship. Therapy is intended to bring out the best in you.
In addition to working on a deeper level, we will figure out what relationship skills are needed to help you succeed in dating and relationships. We can work on improving your communication skills (most of us need to help with this!), setting boundaries, increasing your emotional intelligence, creating a deeper connection, etc..
You can experience greater intimacy, commitment, and joy in your relationships.
You can be authentically you and feel confident when dating and know that you can have a great relationship.
You can know how to assess if the person you date is right for you.
You can communicate with love and respect in your relationship.
You can remain centered and in control during the ups and downs of relationships and dating.
