Lori Edelson, therapist at the mental health clinic in Troy, which provides family and relationship counseling at it’s state of the art facility said, “This Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity to assess relationships and see if there are ways that we could make them stronger. Relationship counseling is a great way to do this in a non-threatening, safe environment. Counseling can be incredibly beneficial for couples, even for those who are currently very happy, as it provides a different point of view and teaches you the tools you need to develop a healthy, long-lasting relationship. “
