I believe therapy should be a collaborative relationship, and I work with clients to explore both present-day solutions and past challenges.
Are you unhappy and stuck in the same patterns? Maybe you feel as if you are living on autopilot always fulfilling endless obligations that feel empty or meaningless? If so, I would love to work with you! I enjoy assisting people who would like things to change but aren't sure how to make this happen. Life is too short to feel stuck! I am dedicated to helping people find their inner truth so they may live an authentic, conscious and meaningful life that is a reflection of who they truly are.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a Lafayette relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Lafayette.
