The foundation of relationship therapy is that change is going to happen with and because of the other people in the room. Being in a relationship means that you no longer get to heal, change, and grow by yourself. Instead, you must heal, change, and grow with your other. Every action you make has a consequence on the other person. I’m sure there is a law in physics that neatly sums this process up, but we are therapists not physicists.
Change in relationships happens in connection with others. We will start by understanding your communication and attachment styles, to see how they are connected. Your attachment style is the patterned way your brain relates to the world and how it copes with the challenges of those relationships. Once we, together, have an understanding of the ways we are communicating, we can begin to unpack the miscommunication, disagreements, and patterns that shape your relationship.
We base our techniques on a range of theories such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, Neuropsychotherapy, Feminist theory, and Existential approaches.
Our therapists offer safe spaces for all members of the LGBTQIA2S+ community.
