Do you feel disconnected from yourself and others? Do you find it difficult to identify, understand, or manage your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors? I view individual therapy as a deeply meaningful and collaborative process that can serve as a catalyst to shifting the way you relate to yourself and others. This allows for more fulfilling and meaningful relationships, and the subsequent easing of psychological symptoms.
If your romantic relationship is fraught with miscommunication, mistrust, and emotional distance, couples therapy can help by encouraging open and honest communication to facilitate intimacy. Increasing insight and understanding both individually and between partners helps the couple understand the origins and meanings behind their "unreasonable" needs.
Isolation, whether by choice or by circumstance, negatively affects mental health over time. Process groups provide a powerful avenue to directly explore how you relate to others and how others relate to you. It allows you to both give and receive honest feedback while also forming deep connections as you see parts of yourself in other group members' struggles and successes.
