dating and relationships therapy

dating + relationships Therapy for individuals

Dating, and the search for “the one”, can be difficult, exhausting waters to navigate.

  • Do you want to be in a relationship, but find yourself always find them ending the same way?
  • Do you struggle to find your own identity in relationships?
  • Have you experienced heart break and let downs, over and over?
  • Do you question whether you will ever find the right one for you?
  • Is it challenging for you to trust and open up to others?
  • Are you facing the devastating pain of a breakup?

Humans are meant to connect with others. When we lose others, or things don’t work out, it can leave us hopeless, confused, and alone.

Success in the world of dating requires first understanding yourself, managing expectations, and connecting how your past impacts your present. Dating and relationships therapy is here to support you on that path.

Stress and confusion are unfortunately very common in navigating the dating landscape, whether you have been struggling to find someone or haven’t been able to make relationships last over time. Putting yourself out there to date someone is a vulnerable experience, and when it doesn’t work out, it can leave you feeling heartbroken and helpless.

Add in the stresses of modern-day society- time tables, dating apps, and even the pressure you put on yourself- and the journey can feel overwhelming. You may even wonder if it would be easier to quit dating all together.

While there are no guarantees about what will happen in your personal life when you start dating and relationships therapy, the process will help you clarify the things that matter to you the most and develop strategies to guide you to take action aligned with your own values.

With or without a romantic partner, you deserve the peace of a healthy, secure relationship with yourself and the ones in your life.

Can you imagine…

  • Feeling so secure with yourself that you don’t allow a breakup to determine your worth
  • Entering the dating space because you enjoy it, not to fill a void in yourself
  • Understanding the tendencies you bring to a relationship so you can setup healthy communication

In dating and relationships therapy, I’ll support you in all this work and more- starting with the most important relationship of all: the one you have with yourself.

The specific treatment plan of dating and relationships therapy are going to depend on your unique situation and your own personal goals.

Generally, we’ll focus on:

  • Clarifying what you want in a relationship
  • Evaluate what’s getting in the way
  • Discover patterns from past relationships
  • Heal unprocessed pain, betrayal or mistrust from past relationships
  • Prioritize the relationship you have with yourself

As rewarding as it can be to have a close relationship, learning to uphold your own identity while being in a relationship is crucial.

A balance of connection and dependence and individual autonomy is healthy, and necessary, for both individuals and for the relationship itself.

I’ll work with you from a judgment free perspective. I know how hard managing the dating landscape can be, and I’m here to guide my clients in learning and growth that they can take with them outside of the therapy room.

Challenges in relationships are part of life, especially during periods where you are looking for partnership. You may wonder what level of stress “warrants” you to seek out therapy.

Dating and relationships are complex, and many of us did not learn much about what it means to have a healthy, functional relationship in childhood and upbringing.

When it comes to dating and relationships therapy, I typically recommend therapy if you have been in several relationships that did not work out and you notice similar themes in the way or the time they ended. Counseling is also helpful if you are newly in a relationship and want to learn how to set yourself up for balance and healthy communication, or if you are going through a breakup or some sort of trust breech with a partner.

You may have experienced how ending relationships does not end the hurt or patterns in your life. Usually, the same dynamics will pop up again in the next relationship. I’m here to support you in once and for all determining what you want, what’s holding you back, and how to move forward.

The decision to start therapy is a big one, and it requires an investment in, and a commitment of, time and financial resources. However, I believe it is one of the most worthwhile investments we can make.

When relationship patterns are not understood, untangled, and reprocessed, we unconsciously repeat them everywhere, with everyone in our lives (from family members to colleagues to romantic partners). Therapy is a chance to create change that you will carry for the rest of your life.
