You may be questioning if your marriage can survive the trauma of a painful betrayal, whether it’s an affair, financial infidelity, or chronic lies.
You may wonder what happened to the spark between you and your partner, and are eager to find a way to renew your connection and rebuild your partnership.
Maybe you get caught in a pattern of blame, criticism, or contempt that prevents you from being understood by your spouse. Or maybe you shut down for hours or days on end, retreating into yourself rather than dialoguing with your partner about the rupture in the relationship.
Or perhaps you are suffering from the loss of a meaningful relationship through divorce, death, or life transition.
You may be grappling with the aftermath of a childhood history of sexual abuse, physical abuse, or neglect along with the consequent grief, shame, fear, anxiety, depression, difficulty with intimacy, and/or limiting beliefs.
You may be struggling with unresolved pain from prior relationships that serves as a barrier to giving and/or receiving love.
Throughout the past 22 years as a licensed clinical social worker, I’ve helped many individuals, couples and families create meaningful change in their lives. Through specialization in marraige therapy, I’ve helped many couples establish a secure relationship. When your primary love relationship is the source of your pain, participating in relationship therapy is the recommended mode of treatment. Research shows that seeking individual therapy for relationship issues tends to result in disintegration of the relationship rather than strengthening it. Couples can benefit from working with a trained relationship therapist to improve communication, increase compassion, develop mutual respect and appreciation, heal old wounds, rebuild trust, and restore connection. Often times, through relationship counseling, couples are able to create a relationship that is stronger than it was before. There is hope that you can create a new marriage within your existing marriage.
One third of my practice is dedicated to providing individual therapy. Men and women individually benefit from therapy in a variety of ways, including alleviating depression, finding tools to manage anxiety, resolving pain from early childhood experiences, and eliminating limiting beliefs and cycles of self destructive behavior. You might seek therapy to create deeper connections with others, learn to listen to your own inner wisdom, and improve the overall quality of your life.
The decision to participate in therapy can be one of the best investments you make in yourself and your relationships. So often, clients who participate in therapy say they wish they had come sooner. By creating a safe space that is understanding, caring, and collaborative, I can provide an opportunity for growth, healing, and change. I love what I do and feel privileged to help people move toward their goals. Feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule an appointment.
