Hiding is exhausting, you have a hurricane of feelings and ideas inside that you’re ready to let out. When you show up as yourself, it feels like you are just too much. Taking the step to walk through my virtual door, starts this exploration into your hero journey together. Therapy is a relationship that helps you figure out not only who you are but love who you are. We dive deep into your still waters but underneath the surface we find the colors and lights and life that lives at the heart of your coral reef. And I will be right there with you, making sure that you are safe and heard and ready for when your body springs alive and is ready for the best adventure of your life.
It’s time to stop hiding from your partner and shutting down. When you show up as yourself, it feels like all you ever do together is fight. Starting to talk with me as a couple is about healing and comfort and connection. Couples counseling is not about pointing fingers and assigning blame. Our goal is to reconnect you to the person who wants to show up and be fully present in your relationship. And I will be right there with you, making sure that you are safe and heard. Let’s make your relationship a place where you are proud and happy.
Talking to your kids has started to feel like the hardest part of your day. You want to tell them how much they mean to you but the attitude and “I don’t knows” is making it hard to even like your kid. In Family Therapy, we move slowly, really slowly because our focus is on rebuilding the trust and the enjoyment in your relationship. Being honest and being vulnerable with our kids can be heartbreaking but in the end, it is worth the effort when they start to smile again. Don’t waste another minute wondering where your kid went, let’s get you talking again.
Morale is low. Your managers are quitting or starting to have an attitude. Business is still looking good but nobody, including yourself, likes coming into work. I don’t promise quick fixes but I do promise real conversations with actionable steps. Burnout, compassion fatigue, work life balance, they are all a result of company culture and that all starts with you. We create a plan for your organization that is focused on smaller groups so your employees don’t just listen, they also share and feel heard.
Therapy is a place to get real and have a relationship that’s about seeing and hearing who you are, problems and pain included. This isn’t about minimizing what’s happening. It’s about moving through it so you can celebrate the opportunities.
Maybe it’s your too-demanding boss. Maybe your girlfriend doesn’t listen. But therapy gives you a place to explore and act on the idea that you can be your joyful self, no matter the circumstances.
You’re right, you can’t change the people in your life. But you can change. You can embrace who you are and what you need, and the people in your life will begin to change in relation to you. Therapy is the place to learn how to be in relationship and how to show up when the other person doesn’t change the way you want.
Biting your lip does keep the peace. That is true. But it also creates resentment, anger, frustration, and hurt. It slips out in other ways that put distance between you and the people you want to be closer to. Therapy provides space for you to share those problems and learn to build a closer relationship through sharing.
Recognizing our needs and emotions always creates a difference. Being able to state and imagine what you want and what you need in your life and in your relationships will shake things up. Let’s take this to the next level and ask what it would mean to fully show this side of yourself to your partner.
Having a full life is wonderful. But I have to wonder, are you showing up the way you want? Is it full of the people, and work, and love that you want? Do you really have the time to NOT come for therapy?
