Relationship counseling will help you to develop healthy relationship skills by eliminating self-sabotage, helping you to identify potential red flags in partners, and set healthy boundaries for yourself.
End the cycle of finding yourself in the same bad relationships.
Relationship counseling will help you:
- Recognize the signs of unhealthy or manipulative relationships.
- Learn to set healthy boundaries.
- Raise your self-esteem.
- Recognize healthy and unhealthy relationships.
- Identify and advocate for your needs.
- Strengthen your self-worth and sense of efficacy in your life.
You may have found yourself in a relationship that ended badly or feel unable to choose the right partner for you. You may feel like you keep making the same mistakes in relationships over and over again. Getting caught up in the intense feelings of a new relationship, you can overlook characteristics in a person that turn out to be unhealthy or even abusive.
Healthy relationships have a foundation created by safety, honesty, trust, support, cooperation, and accountability. When you have standards or boundaries that are based on knowing what you want and need from a partner and relationship, you will know when things are going off course.
The Importance of Boundaries
Weak boundaries leave you vulnerable for others to take advantage of you. Weak boundaries can also lead to victimization and even abuse. Abuse can begin in very subtle ways and gradually build over time. Abusive people will break down your boundaries a little at a time. You may not notice until it’s too late. Tactics include silent treatment, blaming, shaming, minimizing, lying and invalidation.
Boundaries protect us and give us a way to evaluate the character of others. Boundaries allow you to connect with people in a safe way while getting your own needs met. Every single interaction you have with others involves boundaries between you and them.
We will work together to end your negative patterns and cycles and set you on the path for healthy relationships in all areas of your life.
