Marriage Counseling in New York City

If you are reading this, then the chances are that your marriage is going through a rough patch and is in need of some help to get it back on track again. While it would be easy to criticize couples across New York City for not enlisting the services of a professional at the first sign of trouble in their relationship, the fact of the matter is that it is understandable that many couples, or at least individuals within these relationships, are reluctant to do so. At the end of the day, a marriage is a very special bond between two people and it makes sense that adding another person to this dynamic may seem like a betrayal of some sorts—but trust me, this is not the case.

With a wealth of experience in marriage counseling, Robin Bryant, Ph.D. offers a sensitive, confidential yet effective service that can help couples overcome their struggles and get back to the loving relationship that brought them together in the first place. So, whether you have been married for twenty years or twenty months, Robin Bryant, Ph.D. can help you.

Three Signs Your Marriage May Need Professional Help

The realization for some that a marriage is more than a mere fairytale can be hard to accept, but the reality is that for the vast majority of couples, this is the case. The reasons for this development are as varied as they are specific to each particular couple but what you need to know is that marriages are hard and often need professional help to thrive and prosper. With that in mind, here are three signs that your marriage may need professional help to get it back where it needs to be:

  1. You Aren’t Communicating: Truth be told, a vast majority of marriage and relationship issues are simply challenges in communication. Robin Bryant, Ph.D. will use her qualifications and experience in this regard to find and facilitate new ways of communicating with one another. The reason that this is so important is because once communication has deteriorated beyond the point of repair, it is hard to get going back in the right direction.
  2. All Conversations are Negative: If you find that every conversation that you and your partner are having is based around one partner feeling judged, shamed, or insecure and wanting to withdraw from the conversation, then you know something is wrong. Negative communication can often quickly escalate into emotional abuse so that is another reason why it needs to be tackled early before the problem gets any worse.
  3. When You’re Afraid to Talk: If you are too scared to even bring up an issue, then this is a very clear sign that something needs to change in your marriage. So, if you or your partner is afraid to discuss anything from sex to money, then you definitely need to give my clinic a call!
