The people closest to us can simultaneously be our greatest support, and a source of stress and conflict. Couples counseling can help to resolve problems and create strength, stability and peace in a relationship. Although it is often thought of as something only for “dysfunctional couples,” couples counseling can be helpful for many types of partnership. As partners grow and move forward in a relationship, new challenges can come up. Whether it involves cohabitation, intimacy, finances, or any number of other challenges, couples counseling can be a meaningful way to improve communication and foster a healthier, happier relationship.
