Do you wonder what it takes to develop and maintain healthy relationships in your life? Do you find yourself repeating unhelpful patterns you don't know how to change? Perhaps you struggle to navigate conflict effectively. Do you find as you care for others, you neglect your own needs? Perhaps you struggle to express anger effectively in your relationships. Relationships are often perplexing. As much as we all want to be close to others, maintaining healthy intimacy, without losing our sense of self, is no easy task. It can be difficult to know how to assert healthy boundaries and find authentic connection with others.
When relationship discord remains unaddressed, it can leave people feeling lonely, frustrated, and overwhelmed. But in a safe therapy environment, it's possible to clarify roadblocks and experience profound growth. Relationships are after all the arena in which we learn about ourselves and the world.
Whether you're considering individual, couples or group therapy, you can begin creating the kind of relationships you want! If you are interested in working with me, consider reading more on my website. Then feel free to call for a free 20 minute consultation about your specific needs.

Lavanya Shankar's Groups

Co-ed Interpersonal Process

The group dynamic allows us to model real-world relationships in a safe space. Group therapy can address a variety of issues, including but not limited to, feelings of isolation, depression and anxiety, anger management, setting healthy boundaries, communication techniques and learning to form sacred bonds. People from all walks of life are welcome in this group. Groups in my practice are mixed gender and intergenerational and people come with varied concerns and therapy goals. With that being said, all members share the primary goal of learning how to strengthen interpersonal relationships.
