Major life events, such as the death of a loved one, a career setback, “mid-life” crisis, etc. can cause a period of psychological stress, anxiety or depression. A life crisis can have disastrous consequences on a relationship, particularly when the person who is going through a crisis refuses to accept it and deal with it. Couples counseling can help the individuals understand and address personal crises and can also be effective in dealing with problems in relationships.
