As humans, our lives are defined by our social connections with one another. Professionals refer to these connections as “relationships” — denoting every kind of relationship we can have with another person (not just romantic relationships).

Our friendships, our family bonds, and yes, our romantic relationships, these are all the kinds of relationships that most of us value and depend upon in our daily lives.

And so it’s only fitting we have a blog devoted to exploring these varied but important social connections.

Relationships in Balance, with Nathan Feiles, MSW, LMSW, is a blog about the various relationship dynamics that we encounter in our daily lives. These can include relationships with significant others, family, friends, ourselves, co-workers, peers, bosses, therapists, teachers, clients, doctors, and so on.

Relationships tend to function best when they are in a state of balance (or homeostasis), however, the task of achieving a healthy balance in our relationships is more easily said than done — especially if we didn’t grow up with healthy role models in these areas.

“I’m introducing this blog to Psych Central to offer insight, tools, skills, stories, techniques, and more,” says Nathan, “to help with establishing balance in our daily relationships with others, as well as with ourselves.”

Nathan Feiles, MSW, LMSW is a therapist in the New York City area. In his counseling and therapy practice, Nathan works with individuals, couples, families, and groups, with an inclusive goal of helping people achieve a comfortable balance in their lives. He is known to utilize a variety of treatment modalities in his work in order to best suit the needs of each case. You can learn more about him here.

Please give him a warm Psych Central welcome!
