Do You Need a Marriage and Family Therapist?
Family is one of the greatest gifts we have, and it can also be one of the most awful curses too. For most of us, however, the truth is somewhere in between. Relationships, from the intimate to sibling and parental, and even among our friends and peers, aren't always easy. That is also one reason why so many people seek a marriage and family therapist, or why couples therapy is a common solution - because relationships aren't easy.
Sometimes it is nothing more than an objective and impartial view that is needed to clear up communication issues. Sometimes we actually stop hearing each other, and we have to learn each other's language again. The good news is, you don't have to know what the problem is exactly or even how to fix it. What might be helpful, however, is reaching out to a marriage and family therapist, or couples therapy if the problem is with a significant other.
When problems arise in relationships, they don't simply just go away. Although we have a tendency to "sweep things under the rug," it doesn't mean that those issues don't exist. The problem is, if left unaddressed, these issues continue building. Eventually, when these problems do erupt, it has a tendency to be far worse, much deeper and more harmful as a result.
