If you are going through a divorce or the break up of a significant relationship, you may be wondering why it happened. You might be replaying past events, trying to figure out what went wrong, or what led to the break up. You're likely nervous about "getting back out there" and trying again. When we are struggling in our relationships or trying to get through a divorce or break up, it can be difficult to think about anything else.
Relationships and COVID-19
The COVID-19 outbreak is sure to put a strain on even the strongest relationships. Being stuck in close quarters with your partner while feeling anxious about the pandemic, your job, and your finances can often lead to fights about even small, insignificant things. On the other hand, if you and your partner do not live together, you may be having difficulty deciding how much time to spend together, given the suggestions about social distancing. This may lead feeling cut off and distant from each other. Additionally, if there have been problems brewing in the relationship for awhile, the COVID-19 outbreak may bring some of the problems to the surface. Online therapy is available for individuals as well as couples who want to work on their relationships. Developing better communication skills can be extremely important when you are with someone for such a significant amount of time. Also, working on increasing empathy and understanding for each other can lead to increased relationship satisfaction. Schedule an appointment online or contact me now to see how I can help.
How Therapy For Relationship Problems Can Help:
Therapy can help you realize what some of your underlying struggles are when it comes to relating to others. As a result, this can help you improve the quality of your relationships with others. You can also use therapy to learn new ways of behaving in relationships, which can lead to new experiences. I work with both individuals and couples who want to explore and work on their relationships.
Unfortunately, not all marriages work out. For those couples who have decided to part ways, I provide a variety of services. If a couple has children, often they will seek treatment in order to improve their co-parenting relationship with each other. I am also available to provide therapy as a means of emotional support to individuals as they go through the difficult process of divorce. Finally, I also provide divorce mediation services as a way of helping couples separate in a more civil, less expensive, and less time consuming manner.
