What Is It?
Relationships & You
Relationships are hard. Not only are you constantly trying to balance, compromise, and adapt, but you and your partner introduce intense personal complications into each other’s lives. Loving someone is very vulnerable, and with expectations and emotions so high, it’s easy to let your guard down and outside pressures in.
Many circumstances can strain a relationship, including:
- Personal Trauma or History of Abuse
- Major Life Events
- Families and Intergenerational Conflict
- Your Careers
- Differing Backgrounds, Beliefs, or Lifestyles
We’re here to help. Between our sympathetic care and active approach, we can help you transform your relationship while taking the steps towards your and your partner’s fulfillment. Interested? Book your free consultation today.
Should I Seek Help For Relationships
It’s perfectly normal to seek help for relationships, especially if you feel like you and your partner are heading down the wrong path. As relationship therapists in New York City, we work with people in your position all the time.
You should seek help if you or your partner:
- Are or become physically or emotionally abusive,
- Drink or use drugs to cope, distract, or numb,
- Cheat or think about cheating,
- Constantly argue,
- Struggle to communicate clearly with each other,
- Develop sexual frustration or dysfunction, or
- Struggle to connect after grief or loss
If you need help, we encourage you to reach out to us as soon as you can. We’re available to tailor a plan for you, whether you feel more comfortable online or in-person.
Can Therapy Help Relationships?
Therapy can really help you!
In a hectic and distracted world, therapy is a chance to sit with your thoughts, uncover the root of your problems, and learn how to build trusting relationships. And with the experienced support of an outside voice, you gain an ally to help you unlock what you think, understand how you feel, and better communicate with your partner.
Therapy is a relaxed, judgement-free space to develop practical tools to better handle your relationship—on your timeline. You’re able to deconstruct your distant and isolated life, learn how to build trusting relationships through science-supported modalities, and confidently advance forward from a sturdier foundation.
At Looking Glass, we tailor our therapy to you, listening to you with open ears, then drawing from our extensive experience in evidence-based techniques to create your unique plan.
Our therapies include:
- Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy
- Stress Management
- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
- Interpersonal Therapy
- Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Relationships
- Dialectical Behavior Therapy
- Exposure Therapies
- Trauma-Informed Therapies
- Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia
We collaborate with you to set measurable goals and achieve tangible results. You lead the path. We help you see what you’ve missed along the way—and the opportunities in front of you.
