Relationship Issues

What happened in your relationship?

When you and your partner have relationship issues, it usually means that you have lost track of who you are and what you want from the relationship. Your goals with your partner are no longer the same. There are obstacles to being able to communicate your needs and negotiate them. Together we would try to understand the evolution of the relationship as well as how you may have lost sight of what is important to you.  Once you reconnect with what you want, then you can better evaluate what you want in all your relationships.

Contemplating a break-up or adapting to the loss of a relationship is difficult.

The process of contemplating a break up or divorce then adapting to the outcome puts you in crisis mode. You feel like you are on an emotional roller coaster because you are grieving the loss of the relationship and at the same time trying to manage your present life while contemplating a future one. Fears emerge about ability to handle what is at hand. Support becomes paramount during these times.

You do not have to go through it alone.

The therapeutic relationship is a vehicle to working through the grief and confusion while figuring out your next steps.   It helps you, individually or with your partner, to organize your feelings and thoughts in a supportive environment.  Together we will look at what was important to you before and during your relationship and where the issues began to surface.  Loneliness is inevitable, but it does not have to be all-encompassing.  We are here so you do not have to go though it alone.  This transitional time is an opportunity to re-discover what is important to you in all your relationships.
