Esther Perel, esteemed couples therapist, says that crises are "relationship accelerators." 2020 may have affected your relationships for the better, or you might be struggling after many changes. You are not alone! You may feel "out of practice" with dating after being stalled by quarantine. You may have significant losses. You may find yourself wondering to avoid past pitfalls and mistakes in dating. Maybe you're tired of online dating and want to find other options. This group is a good place to start. We'll cover red flags so that you can learn how to avoid toxic relationships, break old patterns, and shift codependent dynamics.
In this group, you will connect with one another, sharing experiences and learning new perspectives. You will receive reflective feedback from me. We'll use breakout rooms so that you have time to talk 1-1, in small groups, and in the larger group. Bring questions and concerns, and leave equipped for new possibilities.
