Are you tired of the drama and heartbreak when you argue with those closest to you?
One of our greatest needs in life is to feel important. Everyone wants to feel seen by and understood by someone in their life. If not, you feel lonely and become disconnected
Whether it’s in your romantic relationships, your interactions with family or life in general, to feel alone & disconnected is hard and begins to impact other areas of your life.
In fact, research shows that feeling lonely can make it harder to make good decisions and even impact your physical health.
Feeling lonely doesn’t mean you don’t have anyone in your life. It means that you don’t feel connected to people even when they are around. For you, it may mean getting frustrated when people are constantly telling you, “It’s not that bad,” or “stop being so dramatic.” Or it might mean constant arguments. Perhaps members of your family no longer speak to you or you want to go to couples counseling but your significant other refuses to go.
These situations feel isolated and can be devastating. But coaching can help you feel better about your relationships…even if you are the only one coming to coaching sessions!

skills or process strong emotions related to the relationships in their
life every day. The good news is that individual relationship
coaching can be very effective.

Identify Patterns in Your Relationships
Whether you want to talk about one specific relationship (i.e. marriage problems) or work on your interpersonal skills in general, relationship coaching may include talking about patterns in your relationships. Explore how you relate to people in general and talk about how you’ve handled conflict in the past. Or, you may talk about your own values when it comes to relationships and identify your own triggers or unhealthy behaviors. Through relationship coaching, you’ll gain insight into yourself & how you relate to the world.
Learn to Set Boundaries
Setting boundaries can be really difficult and is a common conversation that comes up in coaching. There are times you know you should say no that you don’t. Or times when you try to set boundaries but it results in major conflict. Setting boundaries is a skill. I can help you become more comfortable using this skill.
Accepting When Others Won’t Change
Sometimes, there’s a relationship in our life that just isn’t healthy and can’t become healthy without the other person changing as well. Maybe you’ve poured all of your energy into being the best version of yourself & trying to repair a relationship. Perhaps you’ve even started to lose yourself in the relationship. You want so badly to keep the other person in your life and it’s just not working out. Sometimes, what we talk about in coaching is simply how to accept and cope with the fact that the other person doesn’t want to change.
