In brief: Yes
Of course, nobody thinks that they have an issue, and that they are the "good one" of the relationship.
They may be right, but that's not the point. A good family counselor, and there are some in any area, can help greatly, and if one person does have major issues, refer them for individual care. But the issues may be in both parents, and a good counselor should help both parents.

This sounds as if you need couples counseling to deal with the interpersonal issues, and individual counseling for the individual in question.
Psychiatrist, psychologist, marriage counselor, msw are the type of professional involved. Ask your family doctor for a referral.

Unless a couple is struggling with severe domestic violence or untreated substance abuse, Gottman Method Couple Therapy tends to be best!
