Relationship Issues

Being in relationship is hard! Intimate, romantic, and/or sexual relationships require constant work and attention to grow and flourish. When issues arise in relationships it's important to address them to avoid resentment, which can be a toxic intruder that can hold you back from connecting with your partner(s) the way you want to. Relationship issues can be incredibly painful challenges to work through. Challenges in your relationship(s) can lead to experiences of depression, anxiety, physical illness, sexual intimacy challenges, and self-esteem issues. When this is the case, it can be helpful to seek the help of a therapist to work through your challenges.

Working on relationship issues can take two forms: individual therapy or couples/relationship therapy. Sometimes it feels important to have a safe space to yourself to explore and understand what is coming up for you personally in your relationship with your partner(s). Other times, it's helpful to engage in therapy with your partner(s) to better understand how each of you contribute to the challenges in your relationship and work through them collaboratively. Whichever path seems right to you, having the support of a therapist can be incredibly helpful.
