After a year of dating, Jason and Lara decide to rent an apartment together. This is their first time cohabitating and the couple is excited about this new chapter in their relationship.
Things begin well. They pay their bills on time, maintain their on-campus friendships, and split the housework. But as time goes on, they fight over things that never seemed to matter before. Jason believes that Lara doesn’t value his thoughts and ideas and Lara is suspicious whenever Jason spends the night away from home.
Within months, the couple is fighting almost every day. They stop sharing a bedroom, eating meals together, or talking about anything substantive. After a particularly bad night, their neighbors call the rental management company to make a noise complaint.
When the landlord visits the next day, Jason and Lara realize that their problems have gotten out of hand. Mortified that they’re inconveniencing others and hoping to resolve their differences, they reach out for help.
They meet with a mental health professional at Thriveworks. Their provider works with them to create an action plan that addresses both of their concerns. She even suggests communication and listening tips that will help them deal with future challenges and disagreements in a more collaborative way.
Therapy and counseling services aren’t just for people with major depressive disorder and other illnesses. Counseling can be for everyone — individuals, couples, and families — no matter the severity of the concern.
