No matter how strong you feel your marriage or relationship may be, we all experience times where our relationships may be tested or strained in some way. Difficult communication, high conflict, the introduction of children and affairs or infidelity are just a few of the stressors that may be brought into a relationship. These issues would need to be worked through in order for the relationship to progress. Marital problems and relationship problems have the ability to permeate through all areas of our lives and, therefore, there can be a significant benefit in addressing and working through these issues. A therapist can help a couple along this journey, and can help them to reach a more satisfying and fulfilling relationship or marriage.
