Families and Couple Therapy

Rebuilding bonds, restoring harmony

In relationships and families, trauma can create a shadow of doubt and misunderstanding. Not feeling seen or heard in a relationship makes you feel frustrated and alone. That kicks off a series of miscommunication where each attempt to connect or resolve issues widens the gaps. 

I will help you address these issues and assist you in untangling these complex emotional knots. 

Therapy offers a space for each person to be heard and understood, fostering empathy and rebuilding trust. We work together to develop healthier communication patterns, emotional intimacy, and relationship dynamics. 

Signs your relationship needs therapy:

  • Persistent conflict or arguments that seem irresolvable
  • Feeling disconnected or emotionally distant from each other
  • Breakdown in communication, leading to misunderstandings and hurt
  • Trust issues or unresolved betrayals affecting the relationship
  • Significant life changes or stressors impacting the family dynamic
  • Difficulty in processing a shared traumatic experience
  • Emotional withdrawal or lack of intimacy in the relationship
  • Recurring patterns of negative behavior or interactions
  • Feelings of resentment, frustration, or dissatisfaction within the relationship
  • Inability to resolve past grievances or move forward from them
  • Observing negative effects on children or other family members
  • Desire to improve the relationship but unsure how to proceed

Building a foundation for healing
