“The quality of our relationships determines the quality of our lives.”

– Esther Perel

Relationships 1

Not all relationships are healthy.

People encounter many types of relationships in their lives, including those with partners, family, friendships, colleagues at work, neighbors and other acquaintances, and romantic interludes.

Unfortunately, not all relationships are healthy. Some relationships lack mutual respect and acceptance, for instance, between partners. Families can become estranged over a lack of open communication and long-held disagreements.

Parents can lose a relationship with their children over disagreements about decisions made in life or an unwillingness for each to listen to the other side’s point of view.

Relationships 2Maintaining healthy relationships makes life more fulfilling.

Maintaining a healthy relationship requires honest communication, respect, willingness to accept differences, dependability, authenticity, and more. Therapy can help you keep your relationships healthy.

At Wicker Psychotherapy, we emphasize the quality of the relationships in our lives. We believe human beings need connection rather than being alone in this life.

We will explore together how the important relationships in your life are going and where communication, increased closeness, or repair might need repairing. We will also work with you to process the pain of past wounds from relationships you may carry around, whether from family, friends, or romantic partners.

If you are struggling with a meaningful relationship in your life and need some support, we are here to help.
