Relationships are filled with the greatest joy and suffering. Relational difficulties touch every part of a person’s life. Relationship transitions appear in a number of ways. Challenges you may be encountering are divorce/separation, parent/child relationships, work/educational relationships, or a lack of being in relationship. There are a number of transitions in life that inherently create an environment for relational suffering. However, not all relational challenges are filled with suffering but call for inquiry. Maybe you are going to have a baby or your children have grown and are moving out. These are times of great change and having a place to share, explore, and acknowledge where you are with these changes is invaluable.

There are two areas in relationship transitions that I am most passionate about:
Is your life successful in every area except one? You are an outstanding mother, you manage and run the household and activities, you keep family relationships intact, and successful at work? The only challenge is your intimate relationship. No matter what you do, it never changes. It may fluctuate, however, you seem to find yourself in the same place. That is a very lonely, defeating, and exhausting place to be. My heart goes out to you. I find women who put so much of themselves into their lives and families do not take time for themselves. You are worth the investment.
Are you looking for someone to share your life with? Possibly you have had a few bad relationships and do not want to end up in one again. Unfortunately, getting involved in a harmful relationship can be quite common. The work I do with women is to help them identify toxic/dangerous relationships. We would look at red flags and belief systems that put women at risk for entering a harmful/unfulfilling relationship.
