Why do I always end up in hurtful relationships?

I just want to be loved.

Why are we always fighting? I’m so tired of feeling misunderstood.

Why can’t we be like how we used to be? I don’t know who we are anymore.

If this sounds like you, glad you're here.

You really want fulfilling relationships, but don't know how to get there. You feel stuck, overwhelmed, hurt, and alone.

I get it. I've been there too. My name is Joanne, and I'm an Associate Marriage & Family Therapist whose mission is to help people connect more deeply than ever before.

Here's the neat thing: the very fact that you are reading this is a good sign. Instead of giving up on relationships altogether, there's still a sliver of hope in you that maybe things don't have to be this way.

And they don't. You may not understand WHY you keep finding yourself in the same kind of relationships. That's okay!

Curiosity & Courage
