Relationships are one of the greatest sources of both satisfaction and stress in our lives. Relationships can be intimate, as with spouses, family, friends and lovers. Or they can also be more casual as is often the case with professional and social relationships. No matter what the situation, all of our relationships are fertile ground for intense feelings. Frequently these feelings result in misunderstandings, anger, hurt, disappointment, distress, helplessness and despair. Our relationships are a sensitive source of personal pain as well as great joy.
Working with a therapist either individually or with your partner, creates more understanding and can improve your ability to resolve differences. Therapy can help people develop better ways to form relationships and/or improve their existing relationship.
