Relationships Q & A
Who needs help with relationships?
Relationships take work to be successful and fulfilling. Arguably, they all might need a little help from time to time. However, certain circumstances can require mental health care, including:
- Having a history of physical or sexual abuse
- Losing a job or starting a new career path
- Giving birth to or adopting children
- Losing a loved one or former spouse or partner
- Combining families, as with a blended marriage
- Identifying as gay, lesbian, transgender, bisexual, or queer
These and other circumstances are normal and common, but they can also change the dynamics of even the most robust relationships. The good news is that help form Thriving Center of Psychology can help ease those tensions.
When should I seek help for my relationship?
If you and your partner are experiencing more conflicts and struggles than usual, you can benefit from a relationship consultation. Your practitioner can talk with you and your partner about the issues you’re facing, help you manage the stress, and communicate with each other more productively.
Some stressors are severe enough to require immediate attention, especially if either of you experiences any of the following:
- Sexual frustration or dysfunction
- Alcohol or drug dependency
- Loss or grief
- Cheating (either thoughts or actions)
- Physical, sexual, financial, or emotional abuse
At Thriving Center of Psychology, you can schedule individual appointments, participate in couples therapy, or do both. Utilizing both types of treatment can be advantageous.
How can therapy help my relationship?

- Preserve your relationship or marriage
