Every so often, you simply need someone to talk to. Normally when you have a problem you turn to your partner for comfort and support. But when your partner is the problem, what then? How do you talk about your partner with your partner, when communication is one of the issues that you’re struggling with?
This is likely the reason that relationships struggles are so much more stressful than other types of life struggles. When something is wrong in your marriage or relationship, there are no breaks, little support, and often difficulty figuring out next steps. In Long Island, consider relationship therapy – a beneficial strategy for communicating through relationship and marriage difficulties that takes a lot of the pressure off of your relationship.
What is Relationship Therapy?
Relationship therapy encompasses all types of relationship situations, including marriage counseling, divorce prevention, and marriage training. Relationship therapy provides a judgment free outlet for you and your partner to work through your problems.
As a Long Island Psychologist, I frequently encounter couples that only seek out marriage counseling when they are on the verge of a breakup. But relationship therapy can also be used simply to make sure your marriage or relationship is operating well. We all need someone to talk to – both with their partner and without them. With relationship therapy, you can:
- Discuss Items When They Happen – It’s hard to talk to a partner about a grudge you carry from a year ago, or about an issue that you have spoken about time and time again. But you can talk with a relationship therapist, and let a trained Long Island psychologist help you learn more about yourselves and your partner.
- Communicate More Effectively – Communication is unlikely to break down in the future if you’re communicating openly now. In my therapy offices, I’m able to provide a safe space that gives you a chance to continue communicating, so that you can make sure you’re on the same wavelength and get your point across more effectively.
- Grow Your Relationship Further – Relationship therapy is not just about solving problems – it’s also about growing stronger, through advice and coaching that enhances your relationship further so that the two of you can continue to build a strong foundation.
Working with a Long Island relationship therapist is one of the best things that you can do for your marriage or dating life. No matter what stage you feel like you’re in with your partner, speaking with a Long Island psychologist is a great choice for making sure your needs are met.
