Relationship Counseling: Why You Shouldn't Put It Off

Even the best of relationships can be difficult sometimes. The normal stresses of daily life can impact your conversations with others and cause little things to be taken out of context or get blown out of proportion. 

Whether you want to improve how you relate to your significant other, a co-worker, a child, a parent, or a friend, Andrea Liner, PsyD, at Flux Psychology in Denver, Colorado, offers comprehensive relationship therapy and support to help you navigate your relationships well.

Many patients know counseling will be helpful but don’t make it a priority, so the relationship continues to struggle. In fact, studies show that the majority of couples who need to talk to a therapist wait an average of six years before they seek help. In this blog, Dr. Liner explains why you shouldn’t put it off any longer.

Problems don’t often just go away

Many men and women who delay seeking professional help for their problems have the mistaken idea that the issue will just go away or resolve on its own. However, the opposite is usually the case, and unsettled disputes usually fester and get worse each time they come up.

When you reach out to Flux Psychology for relationship counseling, Dr. Liner skillfully interacts with you and your partner as an unbiased third party. She uses effective psychological techniques and strategies that help you open up and face problems so you can settle them and learn and grow from them. 

You risk disconnecting from the relationship

Because of the difficulties you have when you interact with your teen or an aging parent, for example, you may find yourself pulling away from them emotionally. This is exactly the time when you need to seek help the most.

Relationship counseling can help you build communication and interpersonal skills that you can use to bridge the gaps you feel in your relationships.

You can improve the relationship even if the other party doesn’t participate

It’s common when you are at odds in a relationship that one party doesn’t want to participate in therapy. We encourage you to pursue counseling even if you start alone.

Dr. Liner works with you on issues that may be undermining your relationship, such as dispelling negative thoughts, identifying and overcoming limited beliefs, building trust, and improving your listening skills. 

Depending on the specific nature of your relationship concerns, Dr. Liner customizes a counseling plan that includes psychotherapy, interpersonal therapy, stress management, and support.

If your relationship could use help and hope, don’t put off contacting Flux Psychology one day longer. Call or request an appointment online. Due to COVID-19, Dr. Liner is offering virtual therapy options through our secure telehealth platform.
