You’re seeking real, lasting love in your life. However, you often feel like you're getting nowhere in dating. You've tried dating apps, and find yourself bouncing from one date to another, with no real connection being made. You feel disconnected from dating, let down, and frustrated. Your friends were able to find ‘the one’, but you feel like it's just not happening for you. You're tired of being single and wish to create a meaningful relationship.
Maybe you've just started dating someone, and you find yourself worried if the person you're dating likes you back or is on the same page as you. You're going through your mental checklist, making sure that they have the qualities and values you are looking for in a partner. You want to make sure this person is right for you, but you also worry that maybe they aren't and there will never be anyone else. You just want to find a lasting connection with someone, and the fear of being alone is keeping you from really connecting.
You've noticed yourself questioning the relationship and what your life would be like without your partner. However, you also get worried about what their reaction would be to you leaving the relationship. Would they react poorly? Would it be too traumatic for them and you? You’re scared of being alone and not finding someone else. Sometimes, you find yourself blaming yourself for the problems in the relationship or hoping that your partner could change.
Maybe you are even navigating infidelity, whether you have been cheated on or you have cheated yourself. This can be an incredibly difficult and painful experience, but it doesn’t have to stay that way. You know this relationship isn't healthy and want to move on in a respectful way.
You're going through a breakup. You are grieving the relationship but also the "what could have been" with that person. You find yourself feeling anxious and fearful about dating again. It's new and you don't know what to expect from it. You're sad but you want to move on. You want to have the power to create healthy, lasting, and loving relationships.

We will meet you with our endless empathy and encouragement to create a safe space for you to open up, be heard, and move forward.

We understand that it can be hard to leave a relationship or come to terms with the fact that it is not healthy for you. Together, we will work on identifying healthy relationships, what qualities you are looking for in a relationship, and how they are being met or not. We will also look at what is holding you in the relationship, setting boundaries, what's realistic for a person to change, and recognizing the role you play in the relationship dynamic. We will also create an action plan for how you can start creating healthier relationships with yourself and others.
