Breaking Up and Moving Forward
How Can I Get Over My Ex?
You may have wrapped your whole life around a relationship, so having the relationship end can feel disorienting. Dr. Chloe will help you learn how to manage feelings of loneliness, which can be one of the most difficult parts of a breakup. Sessions will also focus on how to handle urges to contact your ex, or how to respond if your ex tries to contact you. Sessions also include homework to help you regain your self esteem and sense of yourself. If you have spent a lot of time trying to be the person that you thought you had to be in order to get or keep a relationship with someone, therapy can help you to get back in touch with your own needs and sense of self confidence. Getting over a relationship may also mean that you choose to limit contact with that person. For many people, this is easier said than done. Sessions with Dr. Chloe or her associate therapists help people to stay accountable and remain focused on their goal of getting over a relationship so they can be ready when the right person comes along!
Why Do I Keep Dating the Wrong People?
Many clients are very hard on themselves because they feel guilty or disappointed that they keep having difficulties dating. Oftentimes, therapy helps a person to see that there are actually some rather simple and practical changes they can make that will set them up for a more successful and enjoyable dating life. What makes a dating life successful and enjoyable? Learning how to manage your emotions so you don’t get attached too quickly, learning how to manage your urges so you don’t get physically involved too quickly, and learning how to express your needs in a way that sounds confident rather than needy. Many clients also say that they actually already know they have a tendency to give too much or too little, but they need support in order to actually make the changes. Sessions with Dr. Chloe or her associate therapists will help you target exactly where you seem to go off track, and then give you specific therapeutic interventions to help you change your dating patterns.
