Learning to build a healthy relationship with self and others
You may have arrived here because:
- You struggle to set limits in relationships with those close to you and it feels overwhelming.
- Communication with relationships closest to you is difficult and leave you feeling frustrated and unheard.
-You continue to feel dissatisfied in your most intimate relationships.
-You are not sure how to express what you want and need.
- You feel like you give and give in relationships with very little to show for it and feel burnt out.
Whatever the reason, I am glad you are here. Please read on to see if my therapy services can offer you the support that you need.
A pattern of feeling stuck
You might feel like there is no way to break the patterns in your relationships, due to years of going around and around the same cycle . I am here to say it is possible to find a new way forward. It takes work and willingness to unlearn how we relate to others in our lives. We also have to discover the role we play in our relationships. I can help you uncover who you are apart from these roles and gain autonomy of self.
My experience in relationship support
Over the last 8 years I've helped my clients work on healthy boundaries both with themselves and in their relationships with others. I’ve also spent time educating on domestic violence and the impact it has on women. I have used both Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and EMDR to help my clients gain increased confidence in themselves and their ability to have healthy relationships. I have also taught skills to reduce stress and used psychodynamic therapy to explore why they continue to stay stuck in the same patterns in their relationships. This helps clients gain insight and perspective. I also use mindfulness as a tool to help clients learn to be more present in their lives, which can benefit their relationship with self, and overflow into relationship with others. I also have knowledge in emotional regulation, which I teach my clients and this is effective in how they relate to their intimate relationships.
