If you were sick or injured, you’d likely seek help from a medical doctor. If you had a problem with your house, such as a leaking pipe or a broken door, you’d call the appropriate service professional. If your car’s engine were breaking down, you’d take it to the mechanic. Many people who are perfectly comfortable seeking professional help for other problems are still hesitant to reach out for help for problems in their relationships or families. But, just as physical sickness, home repairs, and car problems are a part of life, so too are relationship challenges! So, seeking help for relationship and family challenges should have not more stigma attached than calling a doctor, plumber, or car shop. Professionals can help people through the challenges they face in all areas of life, and relationships and families should be no different!
