At UpliftME Attachment-Based Therapy we work with children, teens, adults, and families – healing relationships and the pain that can result when parents and children struggle. This pain can linger for a lifetime!
As we all have discovered these past years, relationships are very important for our well-being. They can be difficult though. Sometimes our past gets in the way or challenging behaviors make us feel like running away from our own kids!
The parent-child relationship is so important to how we grow up to see ourselves in relationships. If you are a person trying to figure out how to have a healthy relationship when you aren’t sure you’ve ever seen one, or a parent trying to find the answers to understanding and supporting your child, we can help.
These past years have added unusual stress and strain. While it might have felt like you’ve spent all of your time with the ones you love most, it might have also felt like you’ve never been so disconnected, angry, or uncomfortable.
Families have struggled and divorces have increased. Children have struggled to feel comfortable around others, they have had increased behavioral challenges, and have been more sad and angry than we can remember. Teachers are noticing, neighbors are noticing, and parents are feeling helpless and alone.
Young adults have been isolated, all while trying to grow into themselves during an already difficult part of life. And many adults noticed things come up from the past that they thought they had left behind, only to find that those difficult experiences are more present than ever.
Everyone has tried to continue with school, work, and home, but it’s been difficult and our relationships have suffered. Therapy seems like a good answer to these new challenges and to this depth of pain and discomfort. Therapy for relationships could be the best option and considering attachment and the parent-child relationship has never been more relevant to how we are all coping during this time.
At UpliftME Attachment-Based Therapy we want to help. We want to help the babies and toddlers, the grade schoolers, teenagers, and adults who are hurting and longing for connection and greater health within their family and their relationships.
