It can be easy to focus on what’s “wrong” in your life. Often, we use words like lonely, worried, anxious, unseen, unheard, down, sad, angry, resentful, exhausted, or overwhelmed. But, those are just descriptions – and they don’t tell the whole story.
Feeling unseen can lead to withdrawing from relationships. Feeling unheard can lead to endless conversations, bickering, and less sex. Anxiety can make you scared to take chances in life.
The goal of therapy is not to “cure” your feelings.
Feelings are a natural part of life. The goal is to add other words to your experience like Fulfilled. Connected. Content. Proud. Successful. Laughter. Touching. Happy. At ease.
Being successful doesn’t just mean getting a raise or promotion. Imagine waking up and being excited about the day ahead and the people you get to interact with. Or, having a disagreement with your partner that leaves you feeling closer than ever.
Success can be as simple as having confidence in the direction you’re going in life and the choices you make.
Moving past trauma and traumatic memories is another form of success. So is impacting the here and now in your own life and in the world around you. All this is possible and more … with effort and guidance.
So much of your life story can be written by those around you … if you let it. The question is, how do you interact and respond to the natural conflicts, ebbs, and flows of your relationships?
At the Center For Improving Relationships, our goal is provide you with the most supportive, skilled attention you need to heal and thrive in your most important relationships, including:
Right now, you have a gut-wrenching feeling about the future of your relationship. You may feel unseen, unloveable, unwanted, or not good enough. Fights are frequent and even the dog seems to be higher up on the list than you. But, that wasn’t always the case – and it doesn’t have to be like that forever.
It’s possible to have a thriving relationship — even with the constant demands of work, home, and family.
You deserve to have a partner who hears what you say and appreciates all that you do. To wake up each morning with an “I love you” hug, kiss, and maybe something more …
Together, we will help you locate the breakdowns in your communication patterns and learn how to communicate in productive, loving ways. Couples often feel relief within the first six weeks and can’t believe how quickly things start to turn around.
Our mission is to break the cycle of trauma, insecurity, and conflict that is often handed down from generation to generation.
While most of our clients are adults, the Center was founded to improve the lives of children by helping their parents model what a loving relationship can look and feel like – both in the happy times and during our darkest moments. The byproduct of this brave and essential work is creating a more positive world for future generations while strengthening the community we live in now.
As a collective of therapists, we are dedicated to providing excellent care, stellar service, and the ongoing personal development experiences and skills you need to thrive in every aspect of your life.
We are not only therapists, we are people just like you. We’ve been in relationships and experienced the same pitfalls that you do. The only difference is that we have been professionally trained to work through them.
