Individual and Relational Therapist/Yoga Practitioner (BAH, MMFT, they/them)
Connection with others can be both the most important and the most painful aspect of life. You may feel conflicted, yearning for more rewarding relationships while being repeatedly hurt or disappointed by them. Perhaps you make sacrifices for people without getting anything back in return.
Maybe you doubt your choices of friends or partners, or feel ineffective communicating your needs to others. You may be using substances or distraction to numb or avoid hard feelings. Most life experiences—positive and negative—get filtered through our interpersonal relationship, which first get filtered through our sense of self.
