Caini DengMental Health Counselor, MHC-LP
Amidst the hustle of a busy city, it's normal to feel out of place. Let's slow things down while we listen to your inner voice together.
Every relationship comes with its fair share of issues. Navigating the complexities of life together is hard enough, but when you start to feel regularly distressed or hopeless, about your relationship, it may be time to seek professional help. No matter what your issues seem to stem from (disagreements about money, sex, stress, chronic illness, mental illness, infidelity, trust, emotional distance, parenting etc.), if you and your partner are arguing more frequently and experiencing feelings of resentment or contempt, it is likely that there are some underlying problems to address. Because many problems in relationships are a result of communication issues, a qualified mental health therapist can teach you to find new ways of talking to each other to help you find your way back to common ground.

You've done what you thought you were supposed to do, you may have accomplished some major milestones in your life, and yet you are left wondering- isn't it supposed to feel better than this? When your feelings don't match your expectations, you find it hard not to just act "fine" so that others don't think you're ungrateful for what you have. This leaves you feeling ashamed, confused, and alone. I can help you rediscover your own voice, and to finally feel calm, fulfilled, and connected.
Many individuals, couples, and families believe that their struggles have lingered on for so long, therefore “it will never go away”. Others tend to minimize it in hope that “it will just go away”. Research shows that work toward addressing problems can be the most interesting, rewarding, and empowering. It also promotes taking better control over one's life.
