RELATIONSHIP ISSUES

 

 

You may notice that there are certain issues the are occurring in a pattern that are impacting the quality of your relationships with your loved one, friends and/or family members. ​

EMOTIONAL DIFFICULTIES: 

  • feeling very emotionally sensitive

  • difficulty coping with intense emotions like sadness, anger, fear, shame, loneliness, and guilt

  • difficulties with depression, anxiety or panic

 

 

RELATIONSHIP DIFFICULTIES: 

  • communication issues

  • relationships that feel "up and down" 

  • not getting your needs met

  • constantly in fear of losing the relationship or love

  • difficulties with trust

 

 

BEHAVIORAL DIFFICULTIES: 

  • impulsive, unsafe behaviors

  • alcohol or substance use

  • difficulties controlling one's anger

  • eating issues 

WHAT KINDS OF TREATMENT ARE AVAILABLE? 

 

I see the individual to work on issues related to the relationship. This may mean cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), behavior therapy (BT) and/or dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).  The type of therapy may be dependent on the goals. I do not provide couples' therapy, and am more than happy to provide referrals if a couple would like to engage in couple's treatment.   

 

Some DBT skills that individuals may gain could be: 

  • learning how to change the emotions you want to change

  • learning how to ask for the things you need

  • learning how to set limits and boundaries

  • learning how to maintain your self-respect while still saying "no"

  • learning how to get through difficult moments
