Desafíos que enfrentan los adolescentes superdotados / atletas adolescentes talentosos y respuestas para esos desafíos


  • Sometimes, marriages and relationships start to incrementally drift apart. This drift is often unnoticeable in the moment. It's not until you're in the midst of a strained marriage or relationship and looking back that you can notice the drift.


  • In times like this, parenting a teen or young adult who is struggling with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, ADHD/ADD, substance abuse or other struggles can increase the pace of that drift. Tension in a marriage or relationship can increase significantly due to the stress of doing everything in your power to help your teen or young adult. 

  • Other times, a spouse or partner has taken action that has betrayed your trust. The hurt, feelings of isolation, or feeling of "not being enough" for them create a divide in your relationship.

  • You may not feel that leaving is an option as you are also thinking about the impact on your children or teens.  You feel stuck and you feel like you're sinking.


  • For some time now, you observe that you are simply living with each other and less time loving each other.

We see couples in marriage counseling or couples therapy as we work with teens and young adults who are struggling with things like:

Parenting a teenager or young adult can be a challenge. Parenting a teenager or young adult with emotional or behavioral challenges can, at times, feel all-consuming or overwhelming. Teen therapy and counseling for young adults can help and the marriage or relationship may need support as well.

As individuals, we all have our own parenting style. This style is frequently based on how we were parented (or were not parented). As a couple, sometimes parenting styles clash.

Both parents are fully committed to doing everything in the power to help their teen or young adult. There is also an added emotional component as both parent's heart's ache watching their teenager or young adult struggle. This adds more urgency and emphasis on parenting to help them overcome the struggles. 

It is not uncommon for the stress and strain of parenting a struggling teen or young adult to affect the marriage or relationship. Both parents try to hold on for the good of their teen or young adult. 


Holding on is a good strategy in the short term. Yet the longer this strategy is employed, the more the marriage or relationship tends to be impacted. And his is where we can help.

Signs of a Marriage or Relationship Under Strain

Sometimes, it's only by taking a step back and observing your marriage or relationship that you can see the effect of the incremental drift over time.  This can happen so gradually and small drifts can eventually add up to large gulfs.


Sometimes, a big event causes the disruption or strain on a marriage. Infidelity is one such example. Infidelity counseling can help you and your spouse or partner through a complex dynamic or healing from a spouse or partner who was unfaithful. An infidelity therapist can help your relationship regain the foundations of trust and heal from the wounds created by infidelity. 


As you take a step back to observe your marriage or relationship, you may find: 

  • You and your spouse or partner are arguing and divided on parenting your teen or young adult who is struggling with substance abuse, ADHD/ADD, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, etc.

  • You try to communicate with your spouse or partner only to have it turn to arguing or blame and avoiding the subject of your relationship. 

  • Longing for the emotional connection that used to be there but seems to have faded or disappeared

  • Missing the physical intimacy that you used to enjoy as a couple. 

  • Wishing that you could trust your spouse or partner and feeling angry that you can't.

  • You find yourself spending more hours at work or other activities as you feel there is little at home for you.

  • You try to communicate with your partner but nothing seems to change or it ends up in in blame or avoiding the issues.

If you are sincere and genuine about wanting to improve your relationship, then marriage counseling and couples therapy is for you.

Keep in mind that while many couples experience similar struggles in their lives, each couple comes to marriage counseling or couples therapy at different stages of motivation.


If you are unsure on whether marriage counseling or couples therapy is for you, we have a suggestion: give three sessions or marriage counseling or couples therapy a chance. 

In three sessions, you will likely be able to determine:

  • if you and/or your spouse or partner are motivated and sincere about working together to better your marriage or relationship.

  • If you and your spouse or partner are on the road of parenting or co-parenting your struggling teen or young adult together as a united couple.

  • If both you and your spouse or partner connect with the marriage counselor or couples therapist.

  • Whether the direction taken by the marriage counselor or couples therapist lends light at the end of the tunnel and hope for your relationship to become strong and healthy again.

Attending three marriage counseling or couples therapy sessions has little downside compared to the potential benefits that it can have for you as an individual, for your marriage or relationship, and for your family overall.
