Learn to Communicate Better Utilizing Therapy
Communication is challenging in all types of relationships. Talking to a partner, friend, family or colleague can create anxiety, depression or self -doubt. Remember the last time you had to have a difficult conversation and wasn’t sure what to say? Did you fall awkwardly silent? Did you or the other person become defensive? Did you feel misunderstood?
