As a therapist who is rooted in Attachment Theory, relationships are what this work is all about. Attachment theory posits that the primary motivating factor in our lives (aka: why we do what we do) is to seek and maintain connection with our primary caregiver or attachment figure. Essentially, we were created for connection. The gravity of this has gotten lost as we have tangibly and logistically been able to feel more independent and as if we “don’t need” people as much as our ancestors did even 100 years ago. Not to mention that independence is now seen almost as something to applaud. 

Relationships are what bring meaning and purpose to our lives. Simultaneously, they are often the site of our greatest wounding. The first place and opportunity for healing comes from the therapeutic relationship which acts as a container for healing from other relationships. As you sit with your therapist, you will begin to practice showing up differently in relationships, beginning with your relationship with yourself. In the safety of the therapeutic relationship, you can work on seeing yourself differently, more compassionately, and more clearly.

It’s been proven that marital conflict and divorce rates are correlated with overall health. Relationships in general (whether friendship, work relationships, family, or romantic partners), are seen to impact overall health (for better or worse). From an Article at The University of Texas at Austin, Debra Umberson

“Sociologists have played a central role in establishing the link between social relationships and health outcomes, identifying explanations for this link, and discovering social variation (e.g., by gender and race) at the population level. Studies show that social relationships have short- and long-term effects on health, for better and for worse, and that these effects emerge in childhood and cascade throughout life to foster cumulative advantage or disadvantage in health.”
