Love is tough but it doesn’t have to be painful.

On the outside, you two look good together. Maybe people say, “They’re such a cute couple.” But inside you know your relationship is in trouble - the arguments, the silent treatment, the overwhelming emotional distance between you two. You feel alone in the relationship. You’re not sure if you want to leave or stay, and the constant obsession over that choice drains you. You don’t like the people you two are becoming. It’s time to stop working so hard while remaining so unfulfilled, and start moving on a path of healing for both of you.

Ibisanmi is a Yoruba word that means "being born fits me." To us, it means, "I am born to be enough, born to be whole, complete and lacking nothing. I am unique and filled with all I need to enjoy and deal with life - its challenges and its blessings." At Ibisanmi Relational Health, myself and our highly qualified therapists are here to make sure you see and reclaim this in yourself and others in your life.

We specialize in working with individuals and couples who find themselves stuck in relationships that are missing the fulfillment they once had. Whether you are three months in or 35 years in, we’re here to walk with you on the journey to stop settling and get what you need. As trained relational therapists, we’ll help you and your partner gain a deeper understanding of how you connect with each other and what you want out of your relationship. You will be empowered to interrupt the toxic patterns of distrust, disrespect, criticism, silence, and defensiveness that chip away at your confidence. We’ll work with you to develop effective communication and empathic skills to identify and express your fears, sadness, disappointments, resentments, anger, shame, and anxiety to each other. We’ll be here to help you gain the strength, wisdom, and courage to choose a healthy and fulfilling path for yourself and relationship.
