You re-read text threads. 'Was that too much?' 'What does that mean?' You have lost faith in your ability to make decisions, fearing a repeat of past mistakes. Doubting your value and desirability. You prioritize the needs of others, losing yourself in the process. You wonder if things will ever change and ask: "Who am I trying to be in relationships? What do I want?" Relationships (breakups, separation, dating, divorce) bring up anxiety, depression and self-judgment - affecting the relationship we have with ourselves. AND, this is an opportunity to define what’s missing, unpack who you are, and strengthen your foundation.
Develop tools to reconnect with your best self, define the relationships you want - and work through the barriers of anxiety, past regrets, and self-doubt. I provide telehealth therapy (incorporating ACT, Gottman therapy, and CBT-I ) for adults who: • Are in difficult relationships/dating/divorce • Experience anxiety/depression • ADHD • Sleep Difficulty
I’ve been on all sides of relationships. I am familiar with negative thoughts taking up space and causing loss of focus and hope. Which is why I am honored to help people work through barriers, strengthen connections, grow their confidence - and develop the foundation of who they are and want to be. Interested in learning more? Please reach out.
