With couples and families cooped up together, it can lead to some tense moments, leading to more calls for at least one marriage counselor in Brooklyn.
Dr. William Ryan has been specializing in counseling couples for over 30 years, and knows the coronavirus is impacting society in very many ways.
"There's two directions it could go. One is we expect a baby boom in nine months and the other is we do expect an increase in martial separations," says Ryan.
But Ryan wants everyone to know help is out there by simply logging online, even if you are a new patient.
Ryan recommends a few tips to help tough situations, including watching out for triggering situations -- basically, it's good to take a timeout before saying something that may hurt your partner.
He also says, even when living in tight spaces it is good to find ways to get alone time and to calm yourself.
