Let’s face it: relationships are hard! There are many reasons why we might struggle in dating & relationships. You may feel lonely or disconnected from your partner, or find your relationship is not as fulfilling as it once was. Maybe you’re preoccupied with fears of being rejected or abandoned, or feel hopeless that you’ll ever find “the one.” Sometimes past hurts or traumas affect how satisfied we feel in relationships.
Dating in the age of Tinder and Grindr can leave people feeling frustrated, jaded, and confused. Unhelpful thoughts or unpleasant, even painful feelings may come up. Sometimes we cope with those thoughts and feelings in ways that don’t ultimately fulfill us.
Individual therapy can help you communicate better and improve your satisfaction with your relationships. It can bolster self-awareness and self-confidence. In addition, therapy can help you choose relationships that are worth your time and value. It can also help you discontinue patterns in others that are not.
