Attachment is the deep and enduring connection established between a child and caregiver in the first several years of life. Sometimes as children we fail to develop secure attachments to loving, protective caregivers. Without the most important foundation for healthy development as children, we, as adults, are at risk for low self-esteem, lack of self-control, antisocial attitudes and behaviors, aggression and violence, lack of empathy, compassion, and remorse.
Marital and Pre-Marital Counseling
Sometimes we might feel like we are talking in circles and having the same argument over and over again with our partner or spouse, wondering if we’re ever going to find a way to move past the disconnect. Sometimes we feel like we are walking on eggshells in our own home. Sometimes it may seem like we are working so hard to keep it all together only to feel like the relationship is falling apart. It doesn’t have to be this way. Bridging the gap between what we want and what got us here is the key.
Marriage & Couples Counseling can focus on communication styles and breakdown, trust issues such as affairs and infidelity, stress management, power struggles, agreement on parenting styles, financial stress, and conflict resolution.
At DK Therapy, sessions are designed to help recreate the happiness and intimacy that has been missing and put it back into the marriage and relationship. We all want to feel heard, understood, and appreciated. Find out how to start making positive changes in your relationship.
Peer and Work Relationships
Navigating peer and work relationships is quite similar to any other type of relationship and the therapy should reflect that as well. Work nowadays appears to be less about making money and more about making meaning, especially with those with whom we work. In other words, we are affected by the people around us, and the work environment is no different. Not surprisingly, when a situation affects us deeply, it’s because it resonates with something we might have experienced before, as in something from our own past or trauma that can be triggered.
