Many clients come to therapy with me due to unhappiness being in a relationship, a recent breakup, or inability to find a fulfilling relationship. Some clients come as an individual, and others come to therapy as a couple or a family. I can discuss with you on the phone what might be the best configuration for the therapy based on your current challenges.
The pain related to relationships can be so difficult to handle, because it brings up to the surface feelings surrounding one’s sense of selfhood, personal value, and relatedness with the world. It may be the painful experiences with your family of origin are brought up into focus, and unresolved painful experiences from the past are suddenly present and are demanding attention. Although the work surrounding relationships can feel challenging, the benefits to my clients have often been life-changing.
