People in relationship may seek counseling for any number of reasons. Couples counseling will likely address many aspects of the couple's relationship, although communication tends to be the primary focus. One of the first steps in improving a relationship is to teach each person how to regulate their emotions, stay calm, and use healthy communication skills to resolve problems new and old.
Family counseling is designed to help families collaborate to address family problems. Working with a therapist, families can expect to learn to understand one another better, communicate more effectively, and work proactively to disrupt unhealthy patterns.
