How do you know if you need Marriage Counseling?
Here are the four warning signs of trouble:
1. You see your marriage problems as severe.
2. Talking things over seems useless.
3. You start leading parallel lives.
4. You’re isolated and lonely.

Why You Can’t Use Your Health Insurance:
Insurance companies will not pay for what they call “Relationship Diagnoses,” such as marital problems, family conflicts and career issues. They consider therapy for these problems to be “Elective Treatment” in the same sense that plastic surgery is elective, as compared to treatment for a disease. But you may be able to submit your bills for partial reimbursement. Just ask for a monthly statement.

a better relationship.
|Here's a note from a client -
"I liked that after almost every session I felt better. I felt very comfortable and at ease during our sessions. So overall I really liked it. You've asked a lot of questions and made me talk in the 'right direction'".

Our counselors will answer your questions.
And you, our readers, can offer advice from your experience.
You always maintained your impartiality with us. You encouraged Rita to be more assertive in stating what she wanted to get from your counseling sessions, as well as what she wanted to get from the relationship.
You taught both of us better communication between ourselves, which lead to an emotional comfort level between us that didn't exist before.
You took control of the direction of the session if things were not moving along.
Thanks so much
for helping us."
