Every couple and family experiences conflict, miscommunication and disagreements. Counseling helps couples and families recognize maladaptive behavior in order to resolve conflicts and improve relationships with your partner, children and other family members.
Marriage counseling can help you learn skills to solidify your relationship. These skills may include communicating openly, problem-solving together and discussing differences rationally. In some cases, such as mental illness or substance abuse, your marriage counselor may work with your other health care professionals to provide a complete spectrum of treatment.
