Does your anxiety impact your relationships?
Do you often wonder:
How can I feel more confident and secure in my relationship?
How do I develop a relationship where I feel appreciated and understood?
Asking yourself these questions, will lead to changes in your relationship.
Once you start working on answers to those questions, then it becomes possible for your current relationship to improve OR for you to find a new partner that meets your needs.
Yes, It Can Be Better
Imagine a relationship where you express what you want and feel validated and supported.
Imagine that your ‘go to’ person is your partner and you can ask for help with anything.
Imagine enjoying time together and also being able to give each other space respectfully.
Imagine staying engaged in a tense conversation, knowing you could express yourself well.
Do these descriptions sound like something you day dream about?
More importantly, does it sound like something you want?
Therapy Can Help
When you are anxious it’s hard to access your emotions in a helpful way. This makes it hard to have effective communication in an intimate relationship.
But the good news is, is that you can learn those skills now.
Therapy can help you…
- express your thoughts, feelings, opinions, or preferences. You are just as important as anyone else and sharing these expressions does benefit the relationship.
- ask for help and address concerns quickly so that resentment does not build up.
- create more equality in your relationship so that you don’t have to feel like you have to keep doing all the heavy lifting in your relationship.
To make these changes, you will need to make a choice to take a new and different path.
That path may feel unfamiliar.
Making these changes may make you feel vulnerable.
But it’s a path that will help you experience deeper connection and happiness in your relationship.
I can help you on this path so you can make changes that will benefit your relationship.
In addition to therapy, I integrate the Alpha-Stim, an electrotherapy device that is proven effective and safe for treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and depression.
The Alpha-Stim can help you reduce anxiety by providing a very mild electrical stimulation to the brain (via earclips) to increase the type of brain waves that contribute to feeling calm and relaxed.
After using the device for 20 minutes you may experience a more calm focus response that can last from 6-36 hours, depending on the person. It has been found effective for about 85-90% of individuals. Repeated use will provide longer-lasting, cumulative, more sustainable results.
The Alpha-Stim is FDA cleared. It uses a patented waveform signal to modulate brain activity to promote a more balanced and healthy emotional state. The Alpha-Stim technology was developed in 1981 and, has over
100 research studies…proven safe and effective! For more information about this device, click here for the Alpha-Stim website.
