Relationships Q & A

Who needs help with relationships?

Relationships aren’t always easy. Even the most seemingly flawless relationships take work. But, sometimes, there are extenuating circumstances or factors that put added stress on your relationship, such as:

  • Losing a friend or family member, or former spouse or partner
  • A personal history of physical or sexual abuse
  • Combining families, as with a blended marriage
  • Losing a job or starting a new career path
  • Being gay, transgender, or bisexual
  • Having children

These are just some of the common and entirely normal circumstances couples face that can alter the mechanics of a relationship. In any case, you don’t have to deal with these struggles alone. 

When should I seek help for my relationship?

The caring team at Thriving Mind Psychology encourages you to come in for a consultation if you know there are some struggles in your relationship, like if you’re going to marry someone who already has children. This allows your practitioner to help you learn ways to cope with stress and become a better communicator.

It’s particularly important to come in as soon as possible if you and your partner argue more frequently or if either of you experiences any of the following issues:

  • Cheating (either thoughts or actions)
  • Sexual dysfunction or frustration 
  • Physical or emotional abuse
  • Substance abuse 
  • Grieving or loss

Thriving Mind Psychology can help you individually, or work with you and your partner together during couples counseling sessions. Sometimes both types of therapy are beneficial. 

How can therapy help my relationship?

The goal of therapy when it comes to your relationship is to help you learn to cope and discover communication barriers that negatively affect your relationship. You also learn how to view things from the other side so you and your partner can more effectively communicate and compromise. 

Your dedicated provider at Thriving Mind Psychology personalizes your therapy plan to:

  • Discover your and your partner’s needs
  • Save your marriage or relationship
  • Help resolve conflicts 
  • Learn to talk openly

Thriving Mind Psychology is dedicated to providing you and your partner with the tools you need to make sure you have a thriving and loving relationship that lasts a lifetime.
