Personally, I believe people often wait too long to go into therapy – a last ditch effort- to be able to say everything was tried. I am a firm believer that improving communication skills and strengthen relationships is always a good idea so why not go to therapy before things get too bad. Find a therapist who can believe in your relationship and fully commit and you are on your way.
