I have come across the work of Dr. Conti and his team by coincidence listening to a podcast interview and felt an instant connection to his work.
By the traditional standards, most people would consider me successful, living a dream life, but I knew that to be truly happy, I had to resolve challenges in my relationship of 20 years and with some family members and a few friends.
I have read countless books, taken many courses and worked with several therapists. Still, none of them could pinpoint the core origin of my challenges until I started working with Dr. Chris Farentinos, Dr. Conti's associate.
Working with Chris has been a pleasant surprise. It is hard to describe her skills in a few words, but I will try. She is wise, experienced, kind and empathetic and genuinely cares about her clients. With Chris, I feel heard and understood.
After 20 years of a relationship with my partner, I thought it was natural to see a decline and get stuck in habitual patterns of sameness and arguments, but I could not be more wrong.
Chris helped me understand how my past and especially childhood trauma led to a formation of protective reactions that left me often anxious and unhappy. I also learned how to support my partner, which is essential for creating a sense of mutual safety, understanding and resonance.
After decades of trying, I finally feel like I understand the essence of who I am and live a happy and fulfilling life. Thank you, Dr. Farentinos and Dr. Conti, for helping me be the best of me. You make a real difference!
