Marriage and Relationship Counseling

Problems in relationships are one of the most common reasons people seek psychological counseling. The fear of losing a wife, husband or significant other is one of the most basic human concerns. The good news is that most relationships can be saved.

It is very common for a relationship problem to bring a couple to counseling. But most couples are surprised to learn that the problem that brought them to counseling is very often the “wake up call” that led them to a genuine improvement in their relationship. Communication problems get solved, “baggage” from old relationships gets removed and couples are much happier and able to find a much higher level of emotional intimacy.

Common problems brought to Dr. Smith include

  • Saving a relationship after Infidelity
  • Eliminating or reducing the chance of continued infidelity
  • Problems in communication
  • Alcohol or drug addiction and its effect on relationships
  • Problems of step-parenting
  • Dealing with divorce or separation
  • Reducing the negative impact of divorce or separation on children
  • Couples who are “growing apart”
  • Reducing the impact of anger in relationships


Every relationship is unique. But most of the problems are not as uncommon as people suppose. Counseling helps.
