“I began to realize, ever so painfully, that I was spending an awful lot of time with a knot in my stomach or tightness in my throat. I was constantly walking on eggshells so as not to upset him. I concentrated on his needs and never my own. All my energy went into keeping the peace, instead of enjoying life.”
—Anna

The Center for Healthy Relationships
is a supportive counseling service based in Morris County, NJ. Our mission is to help individuals explore their marriage problems or relationship conflicts. Conflicts and disagreements are a natural part of all relationships. But healthy relationships are built on partners who hold trust, respect, honesty and personal accountability as common values. When partners do not share these values, inequities can develop and conflicts will not be resolved. Communication that includes constant criticism, put-downs, jealously, mind-games, financial control and legal manipulations can lead to frightening arguments, or even violent blow-ups. This kind of emotional, verbal and physical abuse can leave one partner feeling overly responsible, confused, distressed, frustrated and sad, while the other continues to feel more powerful and entitled. If your relationship feels off balance, the Center for Healthy Relationships may be able to help.


Somewhere along the line, things just went off track.

  • Do you feel you are walking on eggshells in your relationship?
  • Have you lost the person you once were?
  • Do you feel devalued by your partner?
  • Does your partner keep the household financial information from you?
  • Is it impossible to make your partner happy?
  • Are you concerned that your partner’s discipline of the children is too strict?
  • Is your partner jealous and possessive?
  • Have you become isolated from your family and friends?
  • Are you always the one responsible for fixing the relationship?
  • Do you ever wonder how this happened to you?
