Individual Therapy for Relationship Issues

Arlington Heights, IL


Relationship Counseling

Relationships can be complicated, and it is often a common reason for seeking counseling.

Do you wonder if you chose the right person?

May be you’ve been married for awhile, and you’re wondering: Is this all there is?

Do you still live with the pain of an old relationship, and you’re having hard time creating a new one.

Relationships determine the quality of our life. Yet they can be difficult to navigate.  May be you are at crossroads in your love life. Part of you may feel the love, and another is disappointed or longing for more. Feeling stuck and unable to find fulfillment can lead to more disappointment and anxiety. Sometimes people have unrealistic romantic ambitions, and tolerate unresolved issues way too long.

How do we learn about healthy relationships? Who are your role models? We are not taught in school about relationships instead we learn about love in our family growing up. As adults, it is our responsibility to become aware of our relational dynamics, and learn how to establish loving connections. 

Whether you’re experiencing intimacy issues or emotional disconnection, counseling can help you to find more balance. I offer guidance to become aware of your relational dynamics and shift ineffective patterns.
