Online Couples Therapy in Rhode Island—Rhode Island Therapists, Counselors
Relationships are full of ups and downs. One month you and your partner may be at a high: you don’t argue, household chores are split evenly, there’s no stress about bills. But the next month you could be having lows: your partner gets laid off from their job, there may be a death in the family, things start slipping, and you can’t seem to communicate properly. Working through the problems that you face is not always a walk in the park. When times get tough, a couples therapist can help you and your partner get back to a place of happiness and love.
You can’t just give up on someone because the situation is not ideal. Great relationships are not great because they have no problems. They are great because both people care enough about the other person to find a way to make it work.”

Why Do We Need Couples Therapy?
It is not uncommon for couples to experience trials and tribulations in their relationship. Whether you have been together for six months or 15 years, everyone can benefit from speaking with a couples therapist. If you are wondering if we can help you and your partner hurdle the obstacle in your relationship, chances are we can. Here is a more comprehensive list of the common issues we see partners come in for:
- Trust issues
- Lack of communication
- Opposing views on life
- Struggling with intimacy problems
- Disagreements about money and budgeting
- Different thoughts on how to raise children
- Concerns about career choices or outlooks
- Arguments about politics
- Major life changes such as buying a new home, moving to a different city, or starting to care for a sick or elderly loved one
You and your partner don’t have to be at each other’s throats in order to benefit from speaking with a licensed counselor. Maybe you just need a little extra guidance on how to have healthy and effective conversations. On the other hand, you may be both so burnt out, you are considering ending your relationship. No matter the severity of your concern, we can help you work through it and come up with compromises that work best for both partners.
