Recovering relationships doesn't need to be difficult.
Most clients come see me due to relationship issues.
Love relationships can be one of the most significant sources of pain for everyone, right? Who hasn't experienced a painful breakup, the loss of a friendship, or social rejection?
Relationships are universal, and so are relationship challenges. One need only listen to music or turn on the television to see that.
The challenge though is that relationship advice is equally universal. Everyone is going through them and plenty of people think that their experts. If you look for it you can find relationship advice almost anywhere. From your friends, from your parents, even in the checkout line.
That's part of what makes fixing a difficult relationship often times overwhelming. This is especially true for relationships that have been impacted by:
Relationships are challenging enough without complications like this. When these complications exist things can become especially brutal and sometimes leave family members feeling isolated and alone.
Talk Therapy Doesn't Always Help
Traditional talk therapy can sometimes be helpful with stuff like this, but often it's not enough. Talk therapy can help identify core values and core issues, but it's not that good at decreasing emotional reactivity.
Here's where I come in. I can utilize Somatic Experiencing to help with the emotions that cause you to react in ways that you later regret. We address and resolve the wounds that are keeping you stuck!
Then you can move forward in a way that honors yourself and the other people involved too. Even more importantly, once the reactivity diminishes you learn to implement tools and strategies that will often times help your partner grow. Once you learn to speak your partner's language and avoid reacting in a way that is triggering, many of the most difficult parts of relationship resolve themselves.
I've seen marriages saved even in the case of infidelity. I've seen families that appeared hopelessly broken put back together again.
I'd love to help you too.
