You’re not speaking to each other… again.
Night after night… you feel alone.
There have been talks. You have voiced your concerns. Changes were supposed to occur. They haven’t.
And even if they did, you wonder if it would make a difference.
The question that keeps coming up…
“Why am I in this relationship?”
You know that even the most successful relationships have some turmoil and conflict.
But things have gotten to the point that you wonder if you’ll ever feel the connection you once had. Binding agreements, financial ties, and parenting feel like the only things keeping you from walking out.
The word “divorce” brings up feelings of shame, failure, fear, and anxiety. And imagining a future without them brings all kinds of unknowns and what-ifs to your mind.
You feel trapped and alone, yet you stay because it’s tolerable.
But the day-to-day unhappiness takes a toll.
It is difficult to control your life when you can’t control its circumstances or others’ behavior.
You find ways to escape: television, social obligations, child responsibilities, work projects, more drinks… texting with the person you shouldn’t be texting.
You’re becoming the person you didn’t want to be.
What DO you have control over?
You have control over what you do next. Deep down, you know that… and that’s why you’re here.
You’re here because you’re ready to define what’s missing, unpack who you are, and figure out what you really want.
I will help you open up, explore your values, and reconnect to your higher self. You’ll face some big questions, but therapy is the right place to work through the answers:
Am I the same person I was when I started my relationship?
What do I generally want and need in relationships?
What do I need to change?
How do I communicate all this to my partner?
This relationship therapy is about YOU…
Who you are…
What matters to you…
Who you want to be…
We’ll do this work together, giving you an action plan for discovering yourself and communicating your needs and feelings to your partner.
And if you’d like to know other ways I can help you in your relationship, you can read about my training in Gottman couples therapy, sex therapy, and intimacy.
It’s time to have the relationship you want and deserve!
