by Amanda & Dylan, Relationship Coaches, Enneagram Teachers If you’re doing inner work, then you already know of the little friend that we ALL have called ‘resistance’.

by Dr. Kendra A. O’Hora, LCMFT Well that was a doozy. You know what I’m talking about, right?…quarantine life. If you were in a state where social distancing or shelter-in-place was enacted then you know the language I’m speaking. Quarantine life is no. stinkin’. joke. And for many of us, that quarantine life is slowly […]
by Dr. Kendra A. O’Hora, LCMFT This social distancing, quarantine, shelter-in-place life has us all seriously rattled. And, we keep being teased that it’s coming to an end… Relationship wise, I’ve heard of people needing: a quarantine from their spouse, some serious spaceeeeee, a vacation all by themselves, and perhaps the most disheartening… a separation […]
by Dr. Kendra A. O’Hora, LCMFT Are you living that quarantine life? Yep, me too. In some senses, it hasn’t been terrrribllleee – we did get served up Tiger King! In other respects its been pretty emotionally and physically draining. Here’s a snapshot: I’ve had some clients struggle with their sobriety because they can’t work […]
by Dr. Kendra A. O’Hora, LCMFT Let me guess, you’ve seen an ad on Instagram or Facebook advertising the uber promoted tele-health and now you’re wondering what all the hub-bub is about?! Curiosity and interest in where the mental health world is headed and how that impacts you is completely normal (and, healthy!), especially during […]
Interested in understanding common myths of therapy and what the therapy process is all about? Check out our latest blog and e-course!
Many couples do not even know where to begin after an affair. They ask themselves whether they’ll even be able to survive. We can help!
What does a healthy couple healing together in therapy look like? Here’s a sneak peak!
At the end of May 2019, we wrapped up the first birth trauma therapy group here at Wellness & Co. For eight weeks, four mamas learned; developed relationships; processed through hurt, pain, abandonment, and anger; and worked on forgiving themselves for not making choices they might have made had they felt empowered to do so. It was a privilege for me to watch them work through their struggles together, especially as a survivor of birth trauma myself. It was amazing to watch a mother soften in her judgement of herself and also feel completely accepted by those around her, something that these women admitted to previously not feeling very often, if ever.
When I started seeing clients in Maryland five years ago I noticed that people often had the same comments or questions regarding the therapeutic process. They typically go something like this: “but you haven’t experienced [parenting] so you don’t really know what its like,” “you must have the perfect marriage,” “I didn’t want to come because people in therapy have real problems and ours isn’t a problem,” “I figured that if I came to therapy once a week something would change”
….these types of comments and more go on and on. In short, people think ALL sorts of things about therapy.
Do you ever feel like your relationship is stuck? Running on autopilot? Or completely thrown off course?
I get it, I really do. I want you to know that if you answered yes to any of those questions, you’re normal. Your relationship is totally, 100%, normal.
We all get stuck. We all let our relationships run on cruise control without the proper love and attention they need. And, we all let our partnerships run off course. All of us, even therapists.
