Therapy for Relationships 

Image by Zoe Schaeffer

Our relationships are often the source of life’s greatest joys and pains.  This is why I am passionate about working to identify unhealthy patterns, build insight, and grow skills to create more balance and joy in our connections with others.

Setting Healthy Boundaries in Relationships

You're a young professional struggling to set boundaries in your relationships, especially with your parents and your boyfriend. Whenever you try to stand up for yourself, you feel guilty. This feeling has been with you since childhood and now affects your romantic relationships too. As a result, you often sacrifice your own happiness to please others.

You're caught in a cycle of frustration because you neglect your own needs. Sometimes, you even feel overwhelmed and suffocated by your parents' expectations. That's why you decide to seek help through therapy.

In therapy, you learn about healthy boundaries and how to establish them. You realize that setting boundaries isn't selfish—it's essential for healthy relationships. Gradually, you start asserting your needs and desires more confidently.

With practice, you begin to feel more empowered and self-assured. And the best part? Your relationships start to improve. You understand that setting boundaries is about respecting both yourself and others, rather than controlling them.

Communication Skills

Communication problems in relationships can be hard to resolve on your own.  In therapy, you'll find a space where we can work together to build stronger connections. We'll dive into learning how to state our needs in relationships in a supportive and understanding way. Through our chats, you'll pick up some handy communication skills to express yourself with confidence.

How can Emotion Focused Therapy help?

Emotion Focused Therapy is based on attachment theory and is grounded in thirty years of research in adult relationships.  We are able to move from anxious or avoidant behavior towards feeling more secure by unpacking internal negative emotion cycles.  The American Psychological Association has named Emotion Focused Therapy as a high-quality, gold standard treatment for relationships.
