I feel so alone, even though I'm in a relationship...

Some relationships can leave a person feeling more alone than if they were single. If this describes you, you’ve come to the right place. My practice focuses on helping women who feel trapped, stuck, dissatisfied, alone, and sad in their marriages or relationships. You may want to work toward reconnection with your partner. You may need to navigate divorce. If you feel stuck in an unhappy relationship or are considering divorce, talking to someone who is empathic and nonjudgmental will help.

If you are chasing a partner who was once available to you, this does not mean you are needy or demanding. It is a relationship red flag that should not be ignored. You might be dealing with someone who is emotionally unavailable. People who are emotionally unavailable fear being smothered by relationships. To avoid this, they keep their partner at arm's length emotionally and seek intensity outside of the relationship. It may seem like they have one foot out the door at all times. This might look like someone who is addicted to a sport, someone who is a workaholic and never home, someone who travels all the time, someone who lives in another state, or someone who has other addictions (sex, gambling, drugs/alcohol).

Signs that your partner is emotionally unavailable:

  • They seek intensity in activities outside the relationship that don't include you (sports, work, travel, etc.)

  • They have addictions (sex, gambling, drugs/alcohol, work)

  • They lack empathy for your feelings

  • They seem to have one foot out the door at all times

  • They avoid emotional closeness with you

  • They tell you you are needy, clingy, or demanding when you attempt to increase emotional closeness

  • You feel like you are chasing them for time, attention, affection

  • They avoid intimacy and commitment

  • They may have multiple relationships at once

  • They are indifferent, avoidant, and detached


"I can't talk to anyone about this..."

Women have affairs as much as men do, according to some research. But if you’re having an affair, you may feel additional shame and guilt when it comes to seeking support. You may not even feel comfortable talking to your best friends or family members. Feeling isolated and ashamed can lead to depression and other mental health problems.


If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms, please contact a professional to get support.

  • Feelings of sadness or hopelessness

  • Loss of interest in things you used to enjoy such as hobbies, exercise, or sex

  • Tiredness or lack of energy

  • Insomnia

  • Feelings of worthlessness or guilt

  • Reduced appetite or eating too much

  • Anxiety or restlessness

  • Irritability

  • Trouble concentrating

  • Frequent thoughts of death or suicide
