    "I Need Connection & My Partner Needs Space. Now What?"

    "I Need Connection & My Partner Needs Space. Now What?"

    In this solo episode, Dr. Alexandra examines a central tension in all relationships: the need for space versus togetherness. If you often find yourself wanting more connection, are you needy? If you typically need more space, are you avoidant? Here, Dr. Alexandra encourages us to ditch the labels and pathology, and instead acknowledge that both space and connection are fundamental needs in an intimate relationship. To help you navigate this, Dr. Alexandra shines a light on the meaning we assign to our orientations around space and shares strategies to help you and your partner create agreements that maximize connection and minimize resentment.

Insightful and compassionate expert advice

I discovered Dr. Solomon’s work over the pandemic and beyond thankful for her wisdom and compassion in guiding me through my relational journey. The tools she has given me have proved invaluable in my growth and healing as I continue my journey. I am a divorced, single mom trying to navigate life, dating, and parenting. Her podcast topics are always relevant and beyond insightful. I always walk away with more knowledge and a perspective that she offers that allows me to look inwards. She hits the mark and resonates with me. Every single time. Her podcast has brought me so much comfort and empowers me to be my best self. Thank you Dr. Solomon.
