Announcement icon I am available via phone or video sessions during the COVID-19 crisis and ongoing, as telehealth is a regular part of my practice.
Many things can get in the way of building strong, healthy relationships. Perhaps you struggle because of the things your partner does. Maybe your partner has lied to you are had an affair and you don't know what to do now. Maybe you want to resolve your feelings and feel close again, but anger and hurt get in your way. Perhaps, you have been hurt in the past and your history gets in the way of allowing love into your heart today. Maybe you know you deserve better, but can't break the cycle? (Therapy services are offered online.)
Healing your relationship begins with healing yourself. Whether it is childhood trauma, something terrible that happened in your recent past or ongoing conflict in your present relationship, the first step is learning self-healing tools that you can reliably use to improve your life. I simply guide your healing process.
I'm Tamara Ridge, LMFT - Founder of The Center for Healthy Relationships. I will teach you how to heal yourself. We will practice these principles together. You will learn to apply them for yourself and in relationship with others. Contact me to enhance your well-being and your relationships. My services are offered online via video telehealth exclusively.

COVID-19 Self-Isolation, Trauma & You (Online)

Online Zoom Group - The traumatized brain constantly looks for threats to try to keep you safe. Since the Pandemic and quarantines, even people who have healed previous traumas are experiencing reemergence of jumpiness, feeling "on edge," nightmares and increased anxiety. There's a good explanation for this and you can help yourself feel better, even during these unusual times. Join me during Zoom group chats to help you understand how & why the pandemic mimics old traumas and what to do about it. This is an online group discussion.
