Some things are a one-woman job

We asked Latasha Matthews what issues an individual might work on in one-on-one sessions that would ultimately benefit their romantic relationships. She says, “Some of the personal issues that take place in individual therapy that would positively impact a romantic relationship are childhood trauma, trust issues, finances, anger and boundary setting, and selfishness.” If you examine those topics, you can see how they might be problems a person developed before entering a relationship, and exist whether or not the person is romantically involved with someone. Left unresolved, each of those problems – like anger issues or trust issues – can certainly be triggered by a romantic partnership, so there is a lot of value in a person seeking one-on-one therapy to address them.
