Each of us has the potential to thrive but encounters obstacles to living freely and fully. These obstacles may be situational, environmental, emotional, or may be the consequence of habits acquired under stress. Sometimes you may just feel alone or stuck, unable to live the life you imagine for yourself and unsure why this is. I believe that you deserve enjoyment, love, and satisfaction from your life. A therapeutic relationship offers a safe context for discovering and understanding the sources of suffering that hold you back, and exploring new solutions together.

Life presents to us a consistent ebb and flow of challenges. As we navigate these, we are guided by our sense of identity, our past experiences, and the patterns we have learned. Often, however, these solutions do not serve us in the present and take the form of habits of mind and action which hold us back, shape our relationships, and create the illusion of false limitations; but there is hope. We are able to shape our lives through changing our patterns, the way we think and communicate, and the actions we learn to take. Through self understanding we may update our narrative and with it transform our realities.

Sometimes it’s easier to numb out with unhealthy habits like over drinking, over or undereating, scrolling social media, or overworking.

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 Boston relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Boston.
