Are you feeling increasingly lonely, stuck, or overwhelmed? While we are built to survive and adapt, all of us at some point will likely struggle with change, loss, traumatic stress, intrusive worries, mood swings, relationship difficulties, or self-defeating patterns. We look inside and out for support, relief, and perspective, to help us at work, school, home and in-between. This search can often be exausting and frustrating, which can lead to the wise and couragous choice to ask for help.

“You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.”-Rumi. You matter. What you think and feel matters. How you are treated matters. What you have been through matters. Perhaps you are a new mom, feeling overwhelmed and scared to admit things aren’t picture perfect. Perhaps you’re going though a hard transition, and feeling alone, lost, or confused. Maybe you’re no longer sure a relationship, or a job, is right for you, and are tired of not feeling seen or heard, valued or understood. Maybe constant worrying, or a hurtful past, is keeping you from living your life the way you want-with laughter, love, and hope.

There are times in our lives when it becomes essential for us to seek greater self-awareness and a fuller sense of meaning and purpose. Perhaps you're experiencing the end of a relationship, a major life transition, an intense period of stuckness, or frequent 3am panic that leaves you in a tailspin. Or, you might just be feeling like nothing is terribly wrong, but still not quite right. I offer support for adults 18+ and couples in the midst of these kinds of muddy waters who are looking for insight into their past experiences and present choices in order to craft a future that feels safe, authentic, and meaningful.

Therapy can be transformational and life altering. Therapy begins by building a safe and trusting relationship with the client and then addressing layers of behaviors, beliefs and perspectives that no longer serve their life. If you want a life worth living and need guidance to create the life you want, I can help. With over 10 years of experience, my greatest joy is to watch a client recognize their worth, embrace who they are, believe in their strength and recognize that life has more to offer than they could ever conceive.

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 Traverse City relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Traverse City.
