Maria believes healthy relationships, and the most important is the relationship you have with yourself, are essential in navigating unhealthy patterns and breaking unhealthy cycles.
Breaking up with Toxicity
Healthy relationships, including the relationship with yourself, are essential in life, and at times, that doesn't happen. Each person's story and experience are unique. Over the years, I have discovered the impact and etiology of toxic personality styles on intimate relationships, family relationships, friendships, and workplace relationships. Learning about toxic people may not change what they do, but you will change how you work through it and not allow it to affect your quality of life.
Maria will share insights and tools on why we attract toxic partners, how to differentiate between unhealthy and healthier partners, attachment styles, communication, thought patterns, and boundaries so you can rebuild yourself to attract and retain healthy relationships.
