Relationship / Marriage Issues

Every relationship comes with its fair share of issues. Navigating the complexities of life together is hard enough, but when you start to feel regularly distressed or hopeless, about your relationship, it may be time to seek professional help. No matter what your issues seem to stem from (disagreements about money, sex, stress, chronic illness, mental illness, infidelity, trust, emotional distance, parenting etc.), if you and your partner are arguing more frequently and experiencing feelings of resentment or contempt, it is likely that there are some underlying problems to address. Because many problems in relationships are a result of communication issues, a qualified mental health therapist can teach you to find new ways of talking to each other to help you find your way back to common ground.

I use many approaches to look at relationship issues, including how attachment styles may related to current relationship problems.

— Karla Rennhofer, Clinical Psychologist

Marriage is the most intimate of relationships and potentially the most hurtful. Infidelity, Porn addiction, sexual incompatibility? These issues can ruin a marriage. I can help bring healing. But many other issues can also interfere with the happiness, especially poor communication and anger management. I try to help both parties feel fully heard and understood, looking for what is good in the marriage and rekindling the old sparks that help start the relationship.
