Therapy to Change the Tides of Relationship Struggles

Our life occurs in the context of our relationships to others. The ability to have relationships, maintain them, and end them, is vital to our emotional wellbeing. The ability to do this at all is a human right, but the ability to do it well is a skill that can be polished and developed. Like all skills, it takes practice and effort but therapy is the secret ingredient that can take your relationships to the next level. Therapy can improve your romantic and familial relationships by enhancing openness, vulnerability, communication skills, understanding relationship patterns, setting boundaries, and clarifying your needs and wants, leading to more effective and meaningful interactions.

With the help of a skilled relationship therapist, you can target the root cause of your relationship challenges. Better yet, therapy with a doctoral-level psychologist can help you develop the skills and a specific plan to help you bond and communicate with more compassion and firmer boundaries. Through the use of newer models of therapy like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), you no longer have to feel lost or hopeless in relation to others – but rather confident and connected.

Innovative Techniques: Process-Based Psychotherapy

Through process-based therapy, the most innovative form of evidence-based therapy, we gain a comprehensive understanding of what makes you who you are, including the core processes keeping you stuck. We then intentionally choose a unique combination of evidence-based approaches to create the most effective treatment plan for you.

Personalized Approach: Client-Centric Practice

Navigating relationship transitions, managing role strain, and setting healthy boundaries are key areas where individual therapy can be immensely beneficial. Life transitions, such as becoming a parent, entering or exiting a relationship, or adjusting to an empty nest, can bring unexpected emotional challenges and a need for adjustment. Therapy offers a supportive space to navigate these changes successfully. Additionally, balancing multiple roles in life, like family responsibilities, work demands, and personal needs, can lead to role strain. This is especially true when caring for others leads to neglecting self-care, resulting in burnout and imbalance. Therapy helps in finding equilibrium and peace amidst these demands. Furthermore, establishing healthy boundaries is crucial in relationships. If you find yourself staying in unhealthy relationships, feeling overwhelmed by pleasing others, or struggling with an all-or-nothing approach, therapy can assist in breaking these patterns. It offers strategies to build emotional courage, recognize unhealthy patterns, and develop healthy coping mechanisms for a more fulfilling relational experience.

Counseling for relationship issues is an investment in yourself and your future. Relationship challenges costs you the ability to engage in heart-centered, fulfilling bonds with others, whereas the ability to live a life filled with fulfilling connections is truly priceless. Breyta psychologists utilize evidence-based treatments to help you meet your goals in a timely and efficient manner.

The length of time it takes to overcome relationship issues varies from person-to-person and is dependent on the nature of the connection. While some clients begin to see results after a few weeks, for others it takes longer. The important thing to remember is there is no right or wrong way to heal. By working closely with our psychologists, we’ll continue to evolve your personalized treatment plan with your progress, consistently moving you toward your relationship goals.

For each client, we use a personalized combination of evidence-based methods, namely Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). CBT enables you to identify negative or distorted beliefs you may have about yourself, while ACT helps you change your relationship to unhelpful thoughts and feelings, be more present, and engage in meaningful behaviors, both of which help you along the path to improved wellness.
