Social connections and relationships are a huge part of life, so much so that they cannot be avoided. Difficulties creating and maintaining healthy personal and professional relationships can stem from a number of different issues, such as lack of trust, interdependencies, poor communication, social anxiety, power struggles, and much, much more. It’s important to face these struggles and find solutions because turmoil within relationships is bound to spill over into other areas of life. Feelings, thoughts, and behaviors can be the cause of a disability to properly bond with others, so finding the root of these issues and the proper treatments to alleviate them takes a trained professional. Counseling Psychologists work with individuals and couples who are in need of the correct tools and practices to approach the relationships in their lives. These therapists provide unique treatment plans designed especially for each patient so that they can begin building the desired relationships in a productive way.
