Our relationships are everything. Our relationship with ourselves, romantic partners, friends and family members - the list goes on. I provide relationship therapy for communication, boundaries and connection to have more meaningful relationships.
DO YOU WANT TO HAVE HEALTHIER ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIPS AND FRIENDSHIPS?
Do you feel like you keep making the same mistakes in your relationships? Are you choosing the wrong partners? Are you struggling to set boundaries with family members? Or maybe a coworker's upsetting you and you can't figure out how to successfully work with them? These are all normal, valid questions you may be asking yourself. Our relationships impact everything. The pressures of daily life today make it challenging to connect, date, and maintain healthy relationships with family, friends and even in the workplace. It's normal and healthy to want support in creating and maintaining healthy relationships.
Up to 56% of singles reported dating in 2023 feels harder than it ever has. Furthermore, 66% of Americans work remote to some extent and 68% would prefer to be fully remote. While there are many benefits to working remote, the face to face connection is lacking which may be making in person connection feel stressful. Lastly, as of 2023, the divorce rate in the US for first time marriages is between 30%-50%. Now more than ever, having a relationship counselor can be a guiding light to heal, create and maintain secure relationships.
At some point, we all have struggles in our relationships. Whether in dating, our marriage, with a long time friend, or even trying to make friends in adulthood. These are all completely normal challenges and arise as part of being human. The great news is working on these things through relationship therapy with a compassionate, supportive relationship therapist can turn things around and have you feeling more secure.
There are a variety of reasons to see a relationship counselor and get relationship help . Examples of these include:
By having a safe space to process, understand and learn tools to heal your relationship with yourself and others, you'll start to feel more aware and confident in your relationships. The term relationship is also a very broad term. Areas we may focus on in individual relationship therapy include familial relationships, friendships, romantic relationships and professional and work dynamics. Our attachment styles greatly impact how we connect with others. Secure, anxious, avoidant or anxious-avoidant (or disorganized) are different types of attachment styles and impact how we show up in our relationships.
Attachment styles begin forming during your first two years of life meaning whether you like it or not, attachment is impacting you. Therapy is an excellent place to understand an potentially heal your attachment style. Part of being human means repeating cycles. The way we're raised, the connections we have, and any trauma we may experience all impacts how we connect with others.
Part of working with a relationship counselor will include taking a look at your relationship history and identifying what you want to change. Developing boundaries, understanding your values, and learning tools for communication are just a few examples of tools you'll learn.
Utilizing evidence based care in relationship therapy is crucial. I strive to utilize the most up to date treatment approaches when helping clients work toward healthier relationships. Some of these modalities include:
I have worked with folks around relationships in Denver for over ten years. Relationships are truly my passion and I knew from a young age when I was supporting friends and helping them navigate challenging situations with relationships that this was my calling. I understand how hard relationships can be but also the immense benefit of having healthy relationships. I consistently see folks evolve, change and maintain better relationships of all kinds when they commit to therapy for themselves.
There's a feeling you start to get when your relationships feel more secure. The way you talk, physically carry yourself and even respond will feel stronger. Examples of work with previous clients include:
