It is through our interpersonal relationships that we find meaning, fulfillment, and discover ourselves. We grow into the people we want to be, stretch the potential of our abilities, and feel connected to life within healthy relationships. When our important relationships become troubled or conflicted, however, the effect on us is profound. Symptoms of depression, anxiety, anger or confusion may feel overwhelming. These feelings and related problems are explored in individual therapy in order to reveal what keeps us “stuck” or constrained in our significant relationships. Often we find the seeds of a solution in the problems we face, so exploring them leads to the possibilities for change.
