What Is Relationship Counseling?
Relationship counseling (also called therapy for relationship issues) helps individuals and couples nurture strong connections and navigate relational challenges.
While some romantic relationship problems may be better addressed in couples counseling, relationship counseling offers the alternative of supporting both parties and the individual.
Your relationship counselor can also guide you in handling the unknown of a new relationship and other relational difficulties—be it with family members, significant others, or colleagues.
No matter the circumstances or what bond you want to improve, relationship counseling can help you:
• Embrace vulnerability and open up to others
• Problem-solve or work on conflicts
• Reframe unhealthy perspectives and patterns
• Establish boundaries and expectations
• Strengthen or shift communication practices
• Enhance physical and emotional intimacy with others
• Rediscover your authentic self, values, wants, and needs
• Develop essential social skills
• Be your best self in relationships
Like most people, you (and your loved one) may feel hesitant to seek counseling. Maybe you don’t think your relationship needs help or prefer to “give it time.”
Deep relationships require effort and intention. Your relationship may go through many ups and downs—that’s part of life. And yet, brushing problems off could risk the stability and security of those precious connections.
Your relationship deserves support, and it’s never too late to reconnect and rebuild. Our team of specialized therapists is here for you.

• Issues with physical and emotional intimacy
• Major health conditions or life changes
• Abuse, control, or anger problems*
• Frequent arguments or difficulties with communication
• Conflicts with people at work or school

How Can Relationship Counseling Help You?
As you can tell, people ask for relationship counseling for a wide range of relational challenges.
Whether you are going through a divorce or looking to make and keep friends, relationship counseling can help.
Your relationship counselor can help you understand your interpersonal tendencies, identify habits that may impede growth, and devise strategies to help bring you closer to others. If needed, your counselor can offer advice and a safe space to end a relationship on good, amicable terms. Relationship counseling can also reveal the underlying implications of the difficulties you have with family, friends, or new people in your life.
Regardless of the type of relationship you would like to work on, relationship counseling can help you by bolstering the four pillars of healthy relationships: trust, respect, intimacy, and communication.
When there’s a violation of trust due to conflicts like lying or cheating, you may find it hard to trust that person or anyone else again. Relationship counseling can empower you to recover confidence in yourself and others without fear of getting hurt.
Healthy relationships between partners, relatives, colleagues, and friends require both parties to respect each other. If there’s a breach of trust, abusive or controlling behavior, respect is often lost. Relationship counseling will give you the opportunity to learn to truly value and honor one another.
Every relationship implies a certain level of intimacy—physical, emotional, or both. Having sex with your spouse, hugging a friend, or confiding in your sister are all forms of intimacy. If you feel detached or struggle with opening up, relationship counseling can help.
How you send and receive messages can impact your ability to trust, respect, and be intimate with those around you. Effective communication is about expressing your needs, thoughts, and feelings while listening with intention. Your relationship counselor will support you in recognizing communication patterns and finding better ways to interact.
