Relationships - with partners, parents, friends, and co-workers - are the bedrock of our lives. Sometimes, they are difficult, painful, or just don't work. That's when you need help.

You fight more than not, or you get the silent treatment. There's tension and stress. You don't feel secure or comfortable. You're walking on eggshells. You feel on edge because you are afraid you might do something wrong. You may feel put down or demeaned. Problems aren't discussed. You don't feel like yourself, and you feel like you're going crazy. You suspect your partner may be cheating but you feel powerless. You feel manipulated, guilty, indebted, or shamed.

You're here because your relationship makes you anxious, upset, and frustrated, and you just can't take it anymore. You're here because you're ready for change.

I’m Jill Ann Nelson, a licensed psychotherapist in Chicago.

I know you have suffered too long, too many times because I have been in your situation. You need help now, and that's why I'm here. I help men and women get unstuck from toxic relationship patterns so they can live happy, fulfilling lives. I help clients deal with and recover from the emotional trauma that accompanies relationships with toxic individuals including abusive narcissists, liars, cheaters, and addicts. The collateral damage you suffer from such relationships can create depression, anxiety, co-dependency, substance abuse, disordered eating, and other issues.

Here's how I can help:

  1. Learn everything you can about Toxic Relationship Patterns and how to recover from them.
  2. Contact me for a private consultation - in person or via Skype/FaceTime .
  3. Check out  my Vlog (videos) for trending topics I need to talk about.
  4. Read my Blog for published stories and articles I've written.
  5. Follow me on Social Media.
  6. Learn more about me.

You're in the right place. I'm here to help. We can get through this together.
