I never thought I’d be so alone in a relationship. I really want to work on my relationship with my partner, but my partner isn’t willing to come in for therapy. I’m worried that if we don’t do anything, we won’t make it, but it’s hard to figure out what to do just by myself.”
When you’re feeling alone in a relationship, you might feel stuck or hopeless about getting your partner to reconnect with you, or getting them to change at all. While there it is certainly true that you can’t change others, but the idea that relationships can only be improved if both partners are working on it equally is somewhat of a myth. As a therapist who is trained in systems theory, I understand how our own state of mind, being, and communication with others will naturally have an impact on the relationships we are in. If you are interested in working on you – for yourself – and also open to the idea that doing this personal work can have interpersonal implications, let’s talk. This is one of my favorite areas of therapy and in working with individuals whose primary therapy goal is to improve their relationship, I see it as my role to both validate and challenge you. If you’re feeling alone in a relationship, come in and see what options there still are for working to improve your relationship.
