Isabella Bendix

Becoming a Relationship Therapist

I have experience working with individuals, couples, and families in outpatient settings. My work has focused on helping clients manage anxiety, depression, trauma, crisis issues, grief, and loss, among other concerns. I am passionate about working with couples who want to restore trust, build a stronger connection, foster greater intimacy, manage conflicts, improve communication, and prepare for future life transitions such as parenthood or marriage.

Counseling Philosophy

Although humans are wired for connection, relationships don't come with a manual. We all need a little help as we navigate life's inevitable ups and downs. I believe all my clients have innate strengths and resiliencies on which we can build to get closer to their goals. You are the expert in your relationships. I am here to provide you with the tools and guidance to unlock new opportunities for growth.

My Counseling Style and Strengths

I strive to create a warm, compassionate, non-judgmental environment. I approach counseling with a beginner's mind, meaning I do not have assumptions or expectations about my clients' unique experiences or perspectives. Instead, I collaborate with clients to find meaning in difficult moments and identify solutions to life’s challenges.

As a therapist, I am always optimistic about my clients’ futures, and I try to instill that same optimism in them as well. I use my experience as a yoga instructor to bring a calming presence to our sessions and incorporate mindfulness and meditation techniques into the therapeutic process.

Professional Counseling Background

I have experience working with individuals, couples, and families in outpatient settings. My work has focused on helping clients manage anxiety, depression, trauma, crisis issues, grief, and loss, among other concerns. In the past, I have worked with both adolescents and at-risk teen moms to build trusting relationships, manage parenting stressors, and set goals for the future.
