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!
If you stop and think about it, you were really affected by your parents – the way they treated you; the things they taught you that they believed were most important; the beliefs they shared with you about your value as a human being. A lot of times these things are not stated directly to us, but they come across just the same, and now these thing impact the way you have relationships with others, your partner, your spouse, your friends, even your own children.
As we all have discovered these past years, relationships are very important for our well-being. But they can be difficult. Sometimes our past with our parents literally gets in the way of what we want or what we know would be better.
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 understand and support your child so they don’t grow up hurt and unhappy, we can help.
Why Therapy Now?
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 together.
Families are struggling and divorces have increased. Children are having a hard time feeling comfortable around others, they are more sad, angry, and anxious than we can ever remember. It’s been hard for young people to interact at all. They are lonely and anxious.
Young adults have felt isolated – it’s been confusing to know who they want to be, how they should show up in the world, and how to have close relationships. And many adults are noticing things coming up from their past that they thought they had left behind, only to find that those difficult experiences are more present now 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 you enjoy your life and your relationships. We want to support you to feel confident in the world and support children and families with big feelings.
We can help you with the painful past you carry with you. We will understand how the messages you received as a child play out in your head or the things you avoid because they hurt too much. We will also understand how all of these things impact the relationships you have with your children and family.
