Foundations Counseling offers therapy for marriage attachment issues in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor. A person with an attachment disorder has difficulty connecting with others and managing his or her emotions. This results in a lack of trust and self-worth, a fear of getting close to anyone, anger, and a need to be in control.
The result of negative experiences in early relationships, attachment disorders can leave an individual feeling unsafe and alone. If a person has experienced repeated abandonment, isolation, powerlessness, or a lack of caring for any reason, they may feel that they cannot depend on others and that the world is a dangerous and frightening place. At Foundations Counseling, our marriage attachment disorder treatment will help you or your loved one develop the ability to trust and bond in a healthy manner.
Attachment issues range in severity and fall along a continuum, from those who are securely attached to those who suffer from severe attachment disorder. A lot has to do with the individuals themselves – their physiological and psychological makeup, the type of environment they were raised in, and how long they were in that environment, along with a myriad of other variables.
Individuals with attachment issues may exhibit the following symptoms: defiance and anger, learning delays, intense battles for control, lack of conscience (individual shows no remorse), and lack of impulse control. Candidates who may experience attachment issues include children, adolescents, and adults who did not get their emotional and physical needs met in the first few years. Some of the causes of attachment issues are very subtle and often go unrecognized.
Individuals with attachment disorder see the world differently. They learned in those first few months or years that they could not rely on others to keep them safe. In many cases, they learned that other people were uncaring, mean, rejecting, violent, unreliable, unresponsive, or absent.
