Flourishing Families Counseling

Patterns and Cycles

Finding out why you self-sabotage, get triggered by things you don’t understand, or do things that are harmful to you or others without knowing why is the key to learning about patterns and cycles in your life. 

How Flourishing Families Can Help With Your Patterns and Cycles

When a person is stuck in a “cycle”, a deeper exploration in therapy often reveals why they are stuck. Some examples that may trigger these cycles include, trauma, family of origin issues, and/or a sense of control or security over one’s life. In order to live a more fulfilled, purposeful, and intentional life, we must figure out what purpose the cycle serves.

When to Talk to a Therapist

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, it may be a sign that you are struggling to cope with your experience and could benefit from therapy at Flourishing Families: 
  • Persistent sad, anxious, or “empty” mood
  • Feelings of hopelessness, or pessimism
  • Angry outbursts, irritability, or frustration, even over small matters
  • Loss of interest or pleasure in hobbies and activities
