How to Create Healthy Boundaries in Complex Relationships

 

Dec. 27, 2023 -- Many of us can relate to feeling triggered or having our buttons pushed in our closest relationships, but what can we do about it? Is there an effective way to identify and communicate healthy boundaries? Can we create and sustain healthier connections even in the midst of conflict? We spoke with Whitney Goodman, LMFT, psychotherapist behind the hugely popular Instagram account @SitWithWhit, author of Toxic Positivity, host of the Calling Home podcast, and owner of the Collaborative Counseling Center, about how to communicate our wants, needs, and boundaries, as well as dynamics of enmeshment, estrangement and loving detachment.
