If you’ve ever wondered if you have “daddy issues” or been curious as to how your relationship with your father influences the men you choose and the dynamics you experience in relationships, this episode is for you!
Psychotherapist Elliott Anderson and I take a deep dive into how father wounds show up in our romantic relationships—and most importantly, how we can heal these wounds so as to avoid repeating painful patterns.
Elliott and I discuss:
The two main ways father wounds play out with the couples Elliott counsels.
How psychotherapy can heal a father wound in unique and profound ways.
The importance of forgiving our fathers.
The tension between being drawn to someone who’s good for us vs. feeling like we’re settling.
Why dating a “fixer upper” never works!
Elliott also talks about his new book, Simon Says:
Principles and Perspectives from Dr. Simon V. Anderson.
Simon Says shares the abundant wisdom of our father and the profound and enduring impact he had on his children and community. __________________________________ Elliott Anderson Purchase Simon Says: https://amzn.to/3sYdQFK
