You keep getting hurt in relationships and you are not sure why?

Do you fear intimacy or commitment?

You feel like you struggle to communicate your needs to your partner and have those needs met?

There are so many ways that people struggle to find or maintain meaningful relationships. Together we can enhance your capacity for connection

Let’s evaluate the impact your actions, perceptions and expectations have on your relationship.  Let’s gain insight into your patterns of behavior, communication and thinking as they relate to relationships and learn from them to improve your ability to meaningfully connect.  Let’s evaluate your needs and strategize how to effectively communicate those needs so they might be met within the context of your relationships.

Relationships Between Adult Children and Their Parents

Are you...

  • Someone who feels that they can’t live up to their parent’s expectations?

  • Someone that feels that your parent’s love comes with strings attached?

  • Someone estranged from immediate family members?

  • Someone who wants to connect with their children, but feels like no matter what they do it is not enough?

The feelings that come along with these kinds of strained relationships can be overwhelming, frustrating and draining. It is difficult to accept that we cannot change the people in our lives. But there is hope! We can change how their behavior impacts us and how we respond to them. Therapy offers a non-judgmental space to explore the complex feelings we have towards our parent and the impact these relationships have had on our lives over time. Therapy also can help you identify the patterns involved in these relationships to improve your understanding and sense of control.
