Individual Therapy for Creating Healthy Boundaries

Creating Healthy Boundaries

Personal and professional boundaries are all about defining what kind of behavior is acceptable and what kind is not. Boundaries don’t only apply to interpersonal relationships. They also form the framework of your personal, spiritual, and political beliefs.

Learn Boundaries with Therapy

Renee’s Approach

Good boundaries prevent us from being at the mercy of the behavior of others. Have you ever met someone who puts up few (if any) boundaries in their lives? They are often walked upon by everyone, simply because they can be. Call me cynical, but if you regularly depend on the kindness of strangers, then you are going to be disappointed by them daily. Setting up good boundaries means that you know how to take care of yourself and keep yourself safe from those who wish to use you to their own ends. Renee’s approach is centered around establishing clear boundaries in both our lives and relationships.
