Get Off the Fence and Make Decisions About Your Relationship

We maintain small group sizes to promote an intimate healing space.

1. Get Motivated to Improve Your Relationship

Sometimes when one partner is feeling extremely unhappy and unsatisfied in a relationship, the other partner may not be as motivated to take steps towards improving the relationship or may be unwilling to participate in therapy.

2. Monitor & Track Your Behaviors

The decision regarding what is tolerable or intolerable for you and whether or not to end the relationship is on you. You can still take steps towards improving your relationship on your own and you can also learn to monitor and track your behaviors as well as your partner’s. We can help you assess whether your relationship is working for you.

3. What is In & Out of Your Control

We will help you parse out what you can work on in your current relationship and what is out of your control. We will help you assess the patterns and themes that have occurred throughout your relationships and the ways you might be maintaining these patterns in your current relationships.

4. Recognize Your Core Beliefs

This group is both a skills-based group and a process group. This means that each session will introduce a new skill or tool, and include an open group discussion, weekly assignments, and feedback from group members. This group will will help you understand patterns in your relationships and recognize the core beliefs that are getting in your way. You will also learn to recognize your core beliefs in relationships, identify the behaviors that hurt your relationships, and break painful relationship patterns. Group members will take an interpersonal schemas questionnaire in order to identify their schemas. Members will be asked to practice new skills and behaviors outside of session and monitor their behaviors.
