How Does Family and Marriage Counseling Work?

Family and marriage counseling involves talking about the problems with a counselor. As you talk, memories may come up, or new insights will be gained that can help solve these issues.

A marriage therapist's job is to listen deeply to each spouse without judgment and provide insight into their thoughts and feelings in order to shape a healing response for one another. This process of dialogue allows couples to see how they have been playing out old family patterns--patterns that are usually unconscious--and find ways of interrupting them at the moment so as not to recreate them anew in their marriage.

Many people think marriage therapy is only needed when abuse or infidelity is involved, but this isn't always true at all! Every relationship needs occasional work from marriage counseling to maintain a healthy marriage.
