Can I work on my relationship without my partner there?

Absolutely!

I work with many people who are feeling stuck in their current relationship, or stuck in a pattern of dating the same kind of person and having the same kind of dysfunctional dynamic in their relationships.

Do you constantly feel like you are walking on eggshells in your relationships? Do you feel like you don’t have a voice in your relationships? Are you always apologizing, or always disappointed?

Maybe you know something is wrong with your relationship but can’t figure out exactly what it is.

 
 relationship therapy for individuals in west la

These are all issues that we can work on in individual therapy, to help you create the kind of loving, supportive, meaningful relationship you deserve.

Whether you are in a relationship that isn’t satisfying, have just broken up, or are looking to meet the right person to create a new relationship, therapy can help you learn the skills you need to build a relationship that is right for you.

 

Why do we get stuck in our relationships?

I believe that many of the big problems in our relationships are not really about the 3 main things we tend to argue about: sex, money, and family. Rather, we are acting out patterns of behavior that were set in place long ago, when we were young children.

We don’t need to do a deep dive into your childhood. We can simply clarify the needs you have now, and find much better ways for you to get those needs satisfied in your current or future relationship.
