Last week my husband and I went to see our marriage therapist, and we’ve been seeing her 15 out of our 16 year marriage.  On average, we see her 2 to 3 times a year.  There have been some years that we had to see her 6 months straight because we were going through some things.  I believe she is one of the reasons that our marriage continues to strengthen.  It is not that she is so incredibly talented, it is because when there is a snag in our relationship we don’t hesitate to seek assistance.  It has proven to be a safe place to yell, curse, cry, console and work on our marriage.  There’s no shame involved and I am happy to tell anyone I meet.

Why Wait?

I see so many couples that wait too long before they seek the assistance of a therapist.  Counseling should not be the last effort that you make on your relationship.  It should be the first!  Remember, therapists are not magical and are most effective when both parties are still emotionally connected to each other and the relationship.
