Relationships can be both a source of stress and the place our stress manifests itself because of other issues. If there are relational conflicts or poor communication in the relationship, this can create a stressful environment and perpetual cycles that are difficult to break out of. Conversely, you may have other underlying issues (such as childhood trauma or anger issues) that come out in the relationship but are not the result of it. In both of these situations, couples counseling can be a useful tool for helping differentiate what the underlying problems are. Also, where these problems stem from. And, finally, effective tools for coping with them so the relationship can improve.
