Identity & Relationship CounselingTaking a closer look at who you are, where you’re going and how to find connections.
Who am I and Where Do I Belong?!
We live in a world where we are constantly faced with questions of who am I and where do I belong? Questions may vary on what college should I attend, what career should I be in and motivating life goals. You also might question the social circles that tend to change, friends getting married, having babies… the list is exhausting. What do I want or should I be doing at that point in my life?
We may sometimes feel disconnected with ourselves and the roles we play within our family, friends and relationships. We may even feel pressure to fit into certain roles due to culture and family pressures. It leaves us feeling confused, overwhelmed and uncertain of the person we are and long to be.
Perhaps you have a desire to have real relationships where you can connect at a deeper level, and be yourself. Maybe you’ve been struggling with having healthy relationships whether with family members or a significant other. You might have noticed in relationships, you have trouble setting boundaries, trusting and/or being assertive.
So how do we begin to know ourselves and build better connections with others?
We start with YOU!
And being more self-aware of everything that is you.
We will process and go thru self-discovery and find what you truly value and what it means to be you. This involves figuring out who you are (the good, the bad, and the ugly) and then with that knowledge we will build upon your strengths.
Other skills like mindfulness will help tap into yourself, help teach you to disengage from the chatter of your mind and tap in to what you are feeling in the present moment.
Being able to build better connections with family, friends, and significant others means evaluating yourself in areas that you may struggle with like communication, being assertive, shyness, socially anxious and getting vulnerable with others.
And Guess what?! You are not alone.
I have a plethora of coping skills to help you with each one of those struggles and help you head towards greater and deeper connections.
What are you waiting for?
“Connection is why we’re here. It’s what gives purpose and meaning to our lives. This is what it’s all about.”
Ready for Deeper Connections?
The connections and quality of our personal relationships effect our mental health and personal wellbeing. Forming connections with our families, friends, coworkers and communities help shape our identity. The important connections we have with others contribute to our sense of being and to our identity and to our sense of personal meaning and purpose in life.
