Ilene English, MA, MFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Sebastopol
When you repeatedly find yourself in the same type of negative relationship, counseling can offer insight and support. If your relationships are causing you stress or impacting your daily life, it's a sign you may need some help. Even though relationships involve more than one person, ultimately, the only person you can change is you. With the tools and support of a trusted therapist, you can learn to set healthy boundaries and release unrealistic expectations. Oftentimes, simply gaining a new perspective on your own behavior can open the door to healthier and more satisfying relationships.
How would your life be different if it felt as good on the inside as it appears on the outside? Studies confirm that self-reflection helps people lead happier, healthier lives. It is the inner world and the outer world coming into harmony & alignment that brings about this change.
Having your own therapist can help you find your way to health & healing. I hope you will reach out and ask for the support you need & deserve. It's an amazing process to have someone like me on your team. Reach out today and begin the process of healing.
