Picking the Wrong Partners
If you have a history of selecting partners
who treat you badly, our therapy begins with a careful review of the family in
which you grew up and of each significant romantic relationship you have
If you were abused in any way in any of these
relationships, we would begin by healing the wounds the abuse created.

from abuse. Remember that
abuse can be verbal, mental, physical, sexual, or
subtle forms of neglect.
Many times people who repeatedly select
poor partners have been raised in an environment where they were not valued,
so they never learned to value themselves. This is often compounded if
the person was raised in a religious institution which over-emphasize guilt
and sin, especially in children.
Therapy involves replacing the negative
programming the person has been given with more positive thinking on both a
conscious and unconscious level. Often the person has poor boundaries and
must learn how to build boundaries and maintain them.
