Counseling for Relationship Issues

Relationship Therapists Help You Navigate Difficulties & Challenges

Being in a relationship isn’t always easy. Sometimes, it isn’t your relationship that’s the issue, but personal struggles that keep you from entering meaningful relationships or that can actively push your partner away. No matter what type of relationship struggle you are facing, you can get help when you visit with a therapist at Counseling Works. Our knowledgeable clinicians have experience working with couples at all stages of relationships. Whether you’re starting something new or you’ve been together for decades, counseling can help you overcome relationship issues to develop a more fulfilling partnership. We also provide support for those who are experiencing issues within non-romantic relationships, including parent-child relationships, business partnerships, friendships, and more. Regardless of the type of relationship, counseling can be beneficial when you just can’t seem to move beyond certain issues.

Types of Relationship Issues

Whether your relationship is a romantic one, familial, a friendship, a business partnership, or other type of connection, you may have to deal with issues that impact the way that you interact. Some of the common relationship issues we help clients with include the following:

  • Grief and loss
  • Separation or divorce – prevention or acceptance and life transition
  • Inability to find a peaceful compromise when in conflict
  • Financial disagreements
  • Difficulty communicating effectively
  • Failure to pick up on non-verbal expressions of your partner’s needs
  • Infidelity
  • Lack of appreciation
  • Intimacy issues

How Does Counseling Help Couples Overcome Issues?

Often, working through relationship difficulties requires you to change your perspective and adapt your behavior to be more pro-social. That means you’ll be encouraged to increase empathy, the ability to see situations from another person’s perspective, and more effectively answer the calls for an emotional response from your partner. Visiting with a counselor to resolve relationship issues can help you in any kind of relationships to move beyond difficult situations and be happier together, including:

  • Recovering from loss
  • Working through the emotions of a separation or divorce
  • Improving communication skills
  • Rebuilding trust after infidelity or other relationship issues
  • Understanding your own and your partner’s attachment style
  • Identifying and managing relationship patterns
  • Learning how to resolve conflicts productively
