A relationship is a system in which good communication is essential for the healthy survival of that relationship. Occasionally, family relationships can be strained. Understanding one another and establishing appropriate boundaries to prevent family dysfunction is a crucial component for a healthy family system. Therapy can often be a great tool for family members to speak about troubling matters in a non-judgmental environment. Marriage can sometimes have complex dynamics in terms of the role each spouse plays in the system and what each partner expects of themselves and from one another. Therapy will begin by assessing the essential breakdowns in communication and how feelings of each other progress over time.
