If you’re like most people, the relationships you have with the important people in your life are a key part of your satisfaction and happiness. When these relationships aren’t going well, it’s easy to feel lonely, isolated, anxious, and depressed.

Maybe you’ve been struggling with relationship issues for a while, causing you to feel frustrated, overwhelmed and stuck. Whether the relationship problem is with your spouse, partner, friend, family member, or co-worker, it can significantly erode your happiness. Examples include:

Feeling disconnected from or misunderstood by others can leave you empty and unfulfilled. The stress of relationship problems may be taking a toll on your mental and physical health, interfering with your work life, affecting your self-esteem, or fueling your anxiety and depression.

The good news is that change is possible.

Behind most relationship struggles is a negative pattern of thinking, feeling, and reacting. Do you find yourself doing the same things over and over again, even though they are not bringing you positive results? Or do you find yourself repeatedly having the same disappointing experiences? These are likely rooted in strategies, habits, and beliefs you developed in life that are no longer serving you.

My approach to counseling for relationship problems is focused on helping you change these outdated ways of thinking, feeling, and interacting so that you can develop healthier, more satisfying relationships, and free yourself from the depression, anxiety and low self-esteem that are interfering with your life.

The two key aspects of my approach to counseling for relationship problems include:

  1. I use effective counseling techniques to help you uncover and release negative thoughts and feelings and change the way you relate to others and to yourself. This helps you to overcome the personal barriers – such as anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem – that interfere with healthy relationships.
  2. I help you learn new relationship skills, including communication tools, conflict resolution, boundary setting, and assertiveness, so that you can create the healthy, productive relationships that you want.

Early experiences in your life strongly shape how you feel about yourself, view the world, and interact with others. But it doesn’t mean you’re stuck that way. Cutting edge brain research describes a concept called brain plasticity, which shows that you have the capacity to change, heal, and grow.

My approach to counseling for relationship problems helps you to transform old patterns into new, healthy ways of living and interacting with the world. Imagine if you could:

You deserve to feel happy, healthy, and whole again. Start now on your pathway to better relationships and a more fulfilling life.
