What You Need To Know About Relationship Counseling

By our very nature, humans are social animals who thrive on connection. Whether it’s a family unit, a nationality, or simply a group of like-minded people, relationships are critical to how we make our way in the world. When relationships go awry, however, the effects can be devastating, which is where relationship counseling comes in.

At Flux Psychology, Andrea Liner, PsyD, specializes in helping people navigate the unavoidable ups and down in life, and she’s especially passionate about working with young adults who are learning what it takes to stand on their own. Whether it’s a bad breakup or you feel you’re not connecting the way you should with others, our relationship counseling is designed to help you better plug into the world around you.

Here’s a look at when you might benefit from our relationship counseling services and what you should expect.

Spotting the warning signs

As we mentioned, humans are inherently social creatures who rely on relationships of all kinds for their most basic physical, mental, and emotional needs. While many relationships are superficial, equally as many are tied to your well-being in some very complex ways.

If you’re struggling with interpersonal relationships, you may find yourself exhibiting some of the following behaviors:

In addition to these warning signs, perhaps you’ve been through a breakup and you’re mourning the loss of a relationship. This might be with a significant other or a falling out with a friend or family member.

Whatever your relationship issues, we’re here to help.

Understanding relationship counseling

The goal of our relationship counseling is to help you create and maintain healthy relationships, which means that we show you what a healthy relationship should look like, as well as what an unhealthy relationship can do to your well-being.

When Dr. Liner sits down with you, she spends a considerable amount of time listening to your problems to determine where the issues may lie. Often, your interpersonal problems may stem from something very personal.

In these cases, Dr. Liner works with you to discover the root cause of your problem so that you’re better able to establish meaningful relationships moving forward.

As another example of relationship counseling, if the lines of communication between you and your partner have broken down and fighting is the only way you interact, Dr. Liner provides a valuable space in which the two of you can re-establish healthier communications.

Another key aspect of relationship counseling is to help guide you after a relationship has ended. If you’re going through a breakup and you’re having trouble moving on, Dr. Liner uses therapeutic exercises and actionable plans to help you take charge of your life again.
