Therapy for Intimacy in NYC
Intimacy challenges in relationships
We have helped numerous clients work through problems that get in the way of them developing deeper, more trusting, and more meaningful relationships.
Whether you are a single person or in a partnership, it’s not uncommon for people to struggle with vulnerability, with relying on others for emotional support, and other anxieties associated with being intimate.
These challenges with intimacy often stem from our past difficult experiences like unresolved fears or some anxiety about closeness, and other elusive factors that we may not easily see. These are sensitive topics that are difficult to navigate, and it is helpful to have some guided discussion to draw out and address roadblocks getting in the way of deepening your relationships.
