About

You're too old to not have relationships figured out. But lately, you've started to wonder if it's just normal to feel invisible, if it's even possible for you to have a relationship that makes you want to smile. When you show up as yourself the way the latest article tells you to, all you hear is that you're too much and nothing changes. Now you just find yourself shutting down, keeping as out of the way as possible. You’re tired of feeling scared that your partner will leave. Or even worse, that she'll stay and you’ll be stuck feeling this way forever. Breathing deeply and stretching into your skin feels impossible.
It wasn’t supposed to be this way. You have worked too damn hard to let the past be in the past. You’re kind. You’re smart. There isn’t a Ted Talk you haven’t listened to AND taken notes on. And yet, you find yourself in this place where you feel out of control. The only time you feel like you is when you are away from everyone relaxing with an edible.
Somewhere along the way, you’ve written a story that you are not meant to be loved. But I’m telling you, that story is what is keeping you from a relationship that makes you feel alive. Together, we will reveal the beautiful messy boisterous self that you are inside and help you build a future with deeper and more fulfilling relationships. Let's dive in.

Elizabeth McGinnis's Groups

Dealing with Partner Depression

Your partner is depressed and has been for a while. You love them, you have for a long time. But your tired, your angry, and you don't know what to do. And you don't know what to do. You either don't want to leave or you don't know if it is okay to leave. This group is about talking to others that understand and have real and important ways to listen and to help.
