IN NEW YORK CITY
We specialize in therapy for dating and relationships in NYC
Are you craving genuine and lasting love in your life? Tired of the dating game, swiping through endless profiles, and going on one uninspiring date after another? You’re not alone. Despite your best efforts, it feels like finding “the one” is a distant dream. Your friends have succeeded, but you feel stuck and disconnected from their advice to “put yourself out there” or that “you’ll find it when you stop looking”.
Maybe you’ve started seeing someone, and the uncertainty kicks in. Do they really like you? Are you the right match? You’re playing detective, searching for signs that you’re on the same page. But there’s this fear that maybe they’re not the one, and worse, maybe there won’t be anyone else. Loneliness and abandonment become constant worries, holding you back from the relationship you want.
Enter dating therapy – your secret weapon in navigating the tricky world of relationships. Signs you might benefit? You catch yourself wondering whether the relationship you’re in is healthy. You just feel frustrated and burnt out by the whole dating process. Maybe you’re dealing with the aftermath of infidelity or going through a tough breakup.
Why do people seek therapy for dating and relationships?
Well, let’s face it – dating can be awkward, and relationships can be downright confusing. Maybe you’re stuck in the same relationship patterns, or you just feel lost. People turn to therapy to figure out their communication style, understand their values, and navigate the complicated world of dating. Not to mention, a lot of people are looking for a partner who is in therapy and committed to working on themselves.
Maybe you catch yourself questioning your relationship and wondering if it’s really right for you. The fear of starting over keeps you from ending a connection that’s past its expiration date. Maybe you’re dealing with infidelity, a deeply painful experience that doesn’t have to define your future. If you’re going through a breakup, the grief is real, and the prospect of dating again is anxiety-inducing. It’s painful, but therapy can help you move on in a healthy way.
We get it – everyone’s journey is unique. That’s why we use different approaches, from talking about expectations in early dating to helping single folks feel whole on their own. Breakup blues? Therapy can help you cope, gain closure, and boost your confidence before re-entering the dating scene.
