Carolyn Cole, MA, LCPC, LMFT, NCC, Counselor in Chicago
Are you noticing a change in your relationship? Maybe it feels like the connection is gone, you feel like you are more of a roommate with your partner, or you find yourselves fighting all of the time? You're wondering if things will ever get better or back to the way they once were. You may be feeling scared, sad, angry, worried, or frustrated about what the future holds for your relationship. Or perhaps you are struggling in healing from a recent break-up, or seem to have trouble with having relationships that you are happy with.
Common problems I work with: managing conflict; increasing connection; discovering ways to bring the fun and intimacy back into your relationships; learning to effectively communicate about ongoing problems; rebuilding trust; healing from a break-up; making sense of relationship patterns; difficulty maintaining satisfying relationships; feeling stuck; sadness/depression; worry/anxiety.
My passion is relationships! Skills I teach my clients are research based and have proven outcomes. I will collaborate with you to clarify your goals and break down barriers that prevent you from having the relationship you want.
