And when it does it can be helpful for you to turn to someone who can help you navigate the road you find yourself on.
As a psychologist with over 25 years of experience you’ll find me to be not just a good listener, but also an active participant in your work. My approach is positive and affirming and I strive to bring new perspectives and solutions to your problems. I’ll ask you hard questions. I’ll give you feedback and support. I’ll tell you the occasional bad joke because sometimes we all get a little too serious and lose perspective.
Most importantly, I’ll help you find new ways of thinking, feeling, and being so that you once again feel like you have a sense of direction and are back in charge of your life.
Fulfilled: You are best friends and lovers in every sense of the word. You feel supported by and are supportive of one another. You can’t imagine a sharing your with a different partner.
Friendship: You are a team and may or may not feel like your partner is your best friend. But the passion is gone. It may feel more like you are running a business together than being lovers. There are some simmering resentments underneath that you can’t seem to resolve and your fights may have a repetitive quality to them.
Detached: You feel like two ships passing in the night. While you may each know your roles in keeping the house running there is no sense of teamwork. You have lingering disdain for one another. You are together more out of habit than any sense of passion or love.
One Foot Out the Door: You’re planning or fantasizing about your exit.
After over 25 years of practice I’m convinced that the hardest part of therapy is reaching out with that first phone call or first email to inquire about an appointment.
