When there’s a conflict in a relationship and a solution seems impossible, people often isolate themselves and assume there’s a problem with the relationship as a whole.
They also may fear asking for outside help because doing so makes them vulnerable and opens them up to judgement about the quality of their relationship.
However, there are people who can help you communicate your way through conflicts.
Dr. Amy Reichenbach, a licensed clinical psychologist, specializes in mediation and conflict resolution.
Her goal is to help people reach compassionate understandings and resolve conflicts peacefully; even if the resolution means the end of a relationship.
Amy discusses what mediation is, how it works, and why asking for help can heal you.
