The quality of your relationships determine the quality of your life.
It is highly unlikely that you were taught how to be in relationship with another, let alone how to make love last and endure, and how to make repairs with someone you love. If your parents had a great relationship, they may be good role models, but that experience doesn't necessarily translate to being able to understand and create your own healthy relationships. And, even more importantly, if you did not witness healthy relationships between adults when you were a child, it can be even more difficult to navigate the waters of love, because we are often unconsciously and unknowingly repeating the patterns of our own childhoods.
We can find ourselves continually feeling overwhelmed, unloved, alone or trapped in relationships and not know how to stop the cycle. When love and relationships work in their best manner, we feel supported, strong and capable to go out into the world, knowing we have a safe place waiting for us at home. But, when we don't feel supported and protected in our love bubble, but instead feel lonely, broken, worried, angry or lost -- love can feel more like a battlefield or lonely prison, rather than a safe and loving place to call home.
When working with individual men or women or couples, Dr. Sage uses the Adult Attachment Theory, Neurobiology, Psychodynamic and Psychobiological modalities, alongside evidenced based strategies for healing and creating healthy relationships with self or others.
Whether you are in the early, mid or later stages of life or partnership with another, Dr. Sage will help you repair, heal and re-design your relationships through creating a personalized plan- aimed at your specific issues.
Understanding your own attachment style, as well as your partner's, how to ask for what you need and how to give your partner what they need, making repairs, soothing one another, communicating and leaning in to love are all a part of Dr. Sage's approach in relationship therapy.
