Therapy for Relationships

Campbell, CA and Online Throughout California

Romantic relationships provide us with the opportunity to learn about our internalized beliefs, unresolved wounds, and defensive strategies. By taking the time to be curious about our expectations, perceptions, and responses, we can discontinue recurring cycles of conflict and move closer to enriching, balanced relationships.
Improve Your Relationship
It is absolutely possible to break unhelpful relationship patterns. A relationship is a system, and by changing your half of it, the system inevitably shifts. I can help you identify the needs and emotions fueling your interactions with your partner and try more effective ways of engaging and expressing yourself to elicit a different outcome. By taking ownership for your response and cultivating empathy for your partner, you can come together to navigate challenges and repair ruptures in your relationship.
Tools I Can Offer You:
  • Understand your expectations, perceptions, feelings, and needs
  • Examine the role of your past relationships, family of origin, values, and cultural background
  • Improve communication skills and boundaries
  • De-escalate conflict and self-soothe
  • Distinguish whether a problem is solvable versus perpetual, and how to respond accordingly
  • Work on rebuilding trust
  • Identify your preferred means of receiving love
  • Understand what is and is not in your control
  • Recognize healthy versus unhealthy relationship dynamics
If you'd like support with your relationship, I invite you to reach out to see if we'd work well together.
