Shirlene R Tonks, Pre-Licensed Professional in Liberty, MO


You wonder how things got this way, you used to feel connected with your partner. You feel alone, frustrated, misunderstood, rejected, etc. You reach out, you are turns to an argument or distancing. It often seems like a blame game with defensive reactions. How do you turn this around and feel safe with your partner again, or other loved ones? You are concerned about the outcome, yet it's not getting better. Something needs to change, but you're unsure what to do.
You hope for renewed connection, to make sense of things within your own identity, your relationship with your partner/others. You hope to overcome anxiety, depression, marital distress, infidelity, divorce, addictions, etc. to better understand yourself. Should you go to therapy? Your partner doesn't want to. Do you go on your own? I'm here to help.
I focus on attachment, relationships with partners, parents, siblings, and children. I enjoy working with various diverse populations and addressing spirituality when desired. I offer a safe environment, helping you find your strengths, making sense of your conflict and reactions. I walk beside you, helping you find your best path forward. Give me a call.
