Creating and Nurturing Mindful Relationships

“Anything that’s human is mentionable and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable.
When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less unsettling, and less scary.”

- Fred Rogers

When we are trapped inside toxic relationship cycles, we come to a point where we feel like there is no way out—especially if we keep on recreating the same toxic patterns with different people around us. The first step to breaking free is to understand that you have the power to get out and save yourself from destructive patterns so you can live your life in the healthiest, most authentic way possible.

It is never too late to ask for help, and my therapy approach involves giving you the guidance and support you need to identify these toxic relationships in your life so you can start building healthy, mindful connections.

We will work together to discover how you can break the cycle, rework, and nurture your relationships by identifying the root cause of these unhealthy patterns. This could involve pinpointing traumatic childhood experiences like neglectful or abusive behaviors from parents and other authority figures in your life.

Once you’ve recognized where these dysfunctional patterns come from, we will work toward getting rid of harmful belief systems like constant self-blaming so you can begin to prioritize your well-being. We can then work on rebuilding your self-esteem, setting your emotional and mental boundaries, and learning how to better regulate your emotions.

Breaking away from these patterns will eventually give you the peace of mind you need to finally start loving yourself so you can create and nurture positive relationships while living a life that’s free from emotional pain and trauma-induced vicious cycles.
