You met at the beginning of the pandemic, and, when you decided to quarantine
together, it felt like your relationship was fated. You got close with your partner so
quickly! You may have never felt this safe in love before. Perhaps the universe that
you two created felt idyllic. For a moment you could believe that it would always be
this way: the laughter, the sharing of responsibilities and our most vulnerable
stories, the languorous hours exploring each other.
At some point, there must have been a shift. You didn’t quite connect as easily.
One or both of you became more irritable, withdrawn, tense, or quiet. You started
having less sex which you attributed to the familiarity of a comfortable and secure
relationship. It happens to everyone, right? As restrictions lifted, you may have
experienced a restlessness that became distracting. Maybe you wished for
connection outside of your living space and you itched for community. Perhaps
you started feeling a bit trapped or suffocated. There were times you felt that you
couldn’t get enough space from your partner. Or maybe you lost your sense of self
in this relationship and you yearned to rediscover who you are.
I am here to support you whether your goal is to gently and slowly separate from
your partner or hunker down together as you navigate the uncertainty that has
seeped into your relationship. Reach out today.
