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. Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s relationship and marriage issues experts today.

— Gwendolyn Nelson-Terry, Marriage & Family Therapist in Berkeley, CA

Relationships are extremely powerful experiences - they have the power to build us up and make us feel invincible to the challenges of the world, but it can also break us down, and make us believe our lives are fated for pain and distress. Your relationship can be a tremendous factor for healing and wellness, and you can begin that journey in therapy.

Couples counseling gives partners the opportunity to improve communication, strengthen intimacy and deal effectively with conflict. It is important to be each other’s best friend. A strong foundation of friendship protects your relationship from potential future issues of disconnecting from each other, loneliness or isolation.

— Jason Powell, Marriage & Family Therapist in Portland, ME

Even in individual work, I tend to view most challenges through a relationship- or attachment-based lens. Our personalities and our lives are shaped by our families, friends, and romantic partnerships, and uncovering the hidden dynamics of those relationships can be so powerful. Any surface-level problem in a relationship is linked to a deeper meaning and finding glimpses of that deeper meaning is the real work of therapy.

— Natosha Knight, Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I have been trained in the Gottman method of relationship counseling. A lot of the work I do is with spouses, ex-spouses, and adult children of "narcissistic" individuals. These toxic relationships can have wide ranging effects on our lives, our sense of self, and our reality. I want to help you identify toxic relationships, escape them, recover from their effects, and learn the skills to build healthy relationships going forward.
