You didn’t plan for things to be like this. You know things could be better… but where do you even start?
It feels like you’re running on empty.
Things aren’t great, but you’ve learned to survive. You’ve been dealing with the same issues for a long time. You might start to wonder whether things will always be like this. When people come to therapy, they are usually struggling with questions such as:
“Why do I always get less than what I give in relationships?”
“Will life ever get exciting or is this the best I can hope for?”
“How do other people manage to be happy and fulfilled?”
“Why am I always so emotional, why can’t I control my feelings?”
“Why do I feel so alone when I’m surrounded by people?”
Where did the connection and closeness go?
When couples come to therapy, they commonly use words like “frustrated”, “distant” or “disconnected”.
When we go deeper, we find that the teamwork has deteriorated over time, the constant fighting is getting out of hand, and the sex… Ha! Yeah right! The tension and discouragement are becoming too much to handle. It feels like you have to walk on eggshells around each other. It’s exhausting.
You might be thinking:
“Am I being too needy?”
“Will I start an argument if I bring this up?”
“What’s going on in my partner’s head? Why aren’t they talking to me?”
The good news is: I can help
I can help by creating the space where you can get what you need to rebuild trust and intimacy. Sometimes that could be a space where you can express yourself fully and feel understood. Sometimes what is needed is a very loving kick in the butt!
Since you are inside your relationship, it is difficult to take a step back and see the patterns in the chaos, the structure under the turmoil. Identifying and breaking negative patterns is crucial to improving your life and relationships. A therapist can help you do just that. It is not uncommon for people to say things in session like “no one had ever pointed that out before” – a new clarity and hope ensues after such moments.
Although complicated issues don’t have overnight fixes, my goal is to help you feel better from the very first session. I’m aware that there is no time to waste! The pain and constant fighting must stop – fast.
We therapists are trained to spot patterns and beliefs that you might not be aware of. None of us grow up in ideal circumstances. As children, we do the best we can to navigate the confusing world we inhabit.
We create our own ways of reacting to situations, people, and emotions. Although these can help us to feel safe as young people, some of these behaviors can become ineffective or even damaging later in life.
I won’t sugar coat it: it is hard to spot them on your own, and it is hard to change them without help! A therapist is a guide that can help you to create your own map of the world, so you can live your own definition of joy and fulfilment.
I’m not a sit-and-nod type of therapist. I believe that although change is hard, it doesn’t have to take forever! I will offer insight and solutions, not just a listening ear.
