My Approach to Helping
Has it been so difficult for you to find someone you can truly connect with, someone who loves you for all that you are, or maybe you even find yourself with a partner who mistreats you emotionally? You may find yourself in short-term relationships and attracting the same type of partner. All you want is love and connection, and the ends of relationships or situation-ships can feel really traumatic, and sometimes the intensity is dismissed by friends and family. It can be really defeating. I get it, and you are not alone.
According to the Center of Substance Abuse Treatment, people who find themselves in repeated traumatic relationships are likely to have experienced some sort of traumatic interaction earlier in their life that was either repressed or was unattended to. Trauma survivors often relive or recreate a past trauma in their present lives.
If this feels familiar, I can help. I work with individual relationships - counseling you as you explore past challenges and unexplored traumatic experiences that may have been affecting your relationships. I can help you in processing the binds of past traumas to help create a different ending.
