It is my belief that everyone navigates his or her way through their family of origin and early environment by developing strategies and coping techniques, essentially doing the best one can in the circumstances. Later, these ways of handling relationships and stressors can become limiting. Members of couples and families can also develop entrenched ways of relating that become partially based on assumptions. Frustration, anxiety, disappointment and depression can result. Psychotherapy enables you to understand the evolution of these patterns and develop more choices in how you respond and relate to others.

Are you disillusioned and asking yourself how your working relationship got this bad or hard? You and your business partner had a great business idea and decided to launch a business together. It seemed so promising at first. Even more so if your partner is also your friend, sibling, or spouse. You knew there would be ups and downs. Now that you are mid-stream, the business is bringing out the stressed and critical sides of both of you more than ever. It feels overwhelming and at times, unbearable. And yet, you are under the gun to make it work.
