When any marriage or relationship starts to struggle, it can go one of two ways. The couple can start to talk it over, find solutions to help themselves heal and improve their love over time, or they can develop unhealthy patterns and poor communication that causes the relationship to break down, or get stuck in a way that negatively impacts their health and wellness.
For couples in Merrick that find that they are stuck inside this type of unhealthy relationship pattern, the best solution is to call a Merrick couples counselor and psychologist in Long Island that can help you start to heal your relationship and rebuild the affection you both have for each other.
When is Merrick, New York Couples Counseling Right For You?
In many ways, there is never a wrong time to see a Merrick couples counselor, because couples counseling itself is not limited to solving broken relationships. It’s about building trust, opening up communication, and finding ways to make sure that your relationship becomes stronger, and any relationship can benefit from those improvements.
But there are certainly times when it is more valuable, especially if there are signs that your relationship is or may be starting to crumble. For example:
- Do you feel as though you can’t talk about anything without starting a fight?
- Do you find yourself fighting with your partner when they are not there?
- Do you struggle to give your partner the benefit of the doubt?
- Are you focused heavily on whether your partner will change for you?
- Have you found that your desire to sacrifice yourself for your partner has eroded?
Many couples throw around very common terms, such as “walking on eggshells,” or they may be looking forward to times when their partner is not around, with little connection when their partner is present.
Emotional and physical infidelity often occurs before couples seek out Merrick couples counseling, but it doesn’t have to. Often there are signs well in advance, and when you feel like those issues are occurring it becomes very valuable to seek out the help of a trained Long Island psychologist.
