“When the satisfaction or the security of another person becomes as significant to one as one’s own satisfaction or security, then the state of love exists. Under no other circumstances is a state of love present, regardless of the popular usage of the term.”
– Harry Stack Sullivan
An interpersonal relationship is a profound connection to another person or person(s) that calls for patience, communication, time, and compromise. Meaningful connections are found in every area of our lives from work to school to family and friends.
Although our closest connections can be filled with the deepest of emotional connections, they can also be filled with conflict from time to time. Moreover, when a relationship of any kind ends it may precipitate a landslide of emotions, compromise our financial situation, destabilize those closest to us, and rock our overall sense of security.
Psychotherapy provides an individual or individuals with a safe place to discuss private matters, to explore interpersonal histories, intrapersonal patterns, and to improve our overall ability to communicate our needs effectively for the purpose of supporting authenticity and intimacy.
Our psychotherapists have years of working with couples and families. During our time working together, we have come to understand that conflict is but a therapeutic opportunity to come together and embrace our individual differences while recognizing that the relationship itself is an entity in need of care and consideration.
