Grow Today Therapy
Attachment theory focuses on exploring family patterns and experiences throughout ones childhood. By understanding your early relationships, we are able to discover your attachment style or pattern of attachment with others.
Based on past experiences, you may currently struggle with anxiety in relationships (including fear of abandonment from friends or your partner), lack of confidence to express your needs or have a hard time expressing emotions. Despite these challenges getting in the way of having a deeper relationship with the most important people in your life, you can't seem to change.
By diving into individual therapy through an "Attachment Lens", I not only help clients understand their attachment style, but also help them build trust in others to have a more secure attachment in the relationships that matter most.
When Attachment Theory is implemented in Couples Therapy, partners are able to build intimacy and attune to one another's needs.
Attachment Styles are formulated in childhood based on a caregiver's ability to meet a child's needs. The frequency that a parent meets a child's need formulates the child's level of trust and how they see the world. This is important to know because we often seek a partner with an attachment style that feels comfortable and familiar to us, though it may not be the healthiest.
I guide couples to individually explore early, childhood relationship dynamics to better understand themselves and their partners. This helps to heal relationship anxieties and guide the couple to experience a deeper connection to one another.
Do you ever feel disconnected from the people you love the most? Do you often struggle with sharing your thoughts and feelings with your family in a way that they can hear you?
By guiding families through Attachment-based therapy, I support each family member to freely express their thoughts in the relationship with a guiding presence to emphasize positive communication and validation.
I support families in identifying past challenges and improving communication (including boundary setting) to identify what changes can be made to increase connection and create openness and positive communication.
