in Charlotte, NC
A lot of people think that successful, lasting relationships just happen.
Truth is, building and maintaining a deep, life-giving relationship takes work—self-work.
At Modern Era, we specialize in helping individuals, whether single or in a relationship, cultivate healthy, life-giving relationships with others—and with themselves.
Maybe self-consciousness is keeping you from building the relationship you really desire.
Perhaps an unexpected turn in your current relationship has you searching for answers.
Maybe you haven’t dated anyone in a while and you’re asking, “What am I doing wrong?”
Or, maybe you’re in a long-term, committed relationship but still finding it hard to be open and vulnerable.
You want to feel more confident and secure in your relationships.
You want to be yourself without fear of judgment.
You’re ready to go after more fulfilling connection and intimacy.
How does relationship counseling work at Modern Era?
After meeting with you and learning more about your specific relationship concerns, our counselors work with you to develop a concrete set of goals to help you achieve greater depth, passion and connection in your romantic life.
Many of our clients come to therapy asking questions like:
- How do I communicate my needs more effectively?
- How do I manage intense emotions following a breakup?
- What prevents me from letting my guard down?
- Why do I cheat on the person I love?
- Why do I feel so disconnected and alone?
We’ll help you…
- Learn to communicate more effectively
- Build tools to manage difficult emotions
- Identify and understand your personal attachment style
- Move past limiting self-beliefs
- Pinpoint your unspoken needs and desires
- Problem-solve relationship difficulties
When does relationship counseling make sense?
You don’t have to be in the throes of a separation or divorce to seek relationship-focused therapy. Relationship struggles take many forms, and therapy can help you address and navigate a wide range of relationship concerns.
Truth is, relationship-focused therapy isn’t limited to romantic relationships. In relationship therapy, we usually end up discussing a lot of different relationships, not just the romantic kind. Many of the folks we see for individual counseling come wanting to explore their non-romantic relationships, as well, be it a strained or stressful relationship with a parent, surface-level friendships, workplace relationships, or the loss of a loved one.
Relationships can be a major source of pain and confusion, but they don’t have to be. Relationship therapy can help you explore what you want out of your relationships with others and connect more deeply with the people who matter most.
