We are wired to connect and feel valued by those most important in our lives. This intensity can be the most gratifying and rewarding feeling, but when it is missing, you can feel devastated, alone, and angry.
What happens when one partner is feeling isolated and angry?
The other partner quickly finds out and attempts to support or make things better, but yet again, somehow, you both feel alone and unheard. This is a painful dance. A dance with the passion and desire to make a change, but all attempts seem to fall apart or make things worse.
This is where I can help.
My role is to be your translator and listen to what you are feeling and experiencing in your relationship. When there is little fear of saying something the wrong way, you can feel safe in sharing something vulnerable. I want to be there with you as you reach out to your partner for comfort or to share how their actions have made you feel. I am motivated to ensure that you feel heard and that any issues or struggles you face are not being challenged alone. Couples therapy must be unique to you and your relationship – free of assumption or judgment.
Diana's Other Specialities
Sometimes life can feel isolating and directionless. Problems may arise with work, family, friends, or partners, and when you ask for help, no one seems to be saying the right thing. You reach out for understanding and validation and yet feel more removed and more uncertain if saying anything was right in the first place. These difficulties and struggles do not define who you are or your value. You and your voice are valuable.
I want to provide you with a safe and comfortable space where you can share your feelings without judgment or correction. More than that, I want to support you as you venture to create long-term change in your life by regaining control.
A family is a source of connection and support. A place where there is a deep desire to keep everyone happy while also maintaining rules, boundaries, and accountability. Quite a difficult task if you ask me! Sometimes, a family unit needs support and direction through life changes, grief, anger, or even a betrayal. I want to help you and your family create a structured yet open space. A consistent space where you can speak with honesty and love without fear of long or short-term consequences.
No parent or child has all the answers, yet by working together, you can each collaborate on finding the most fitting solution.
