My Approach To Marriage Counseling

There’s a “typical way” marriage counseling is supposed to go.

Most marriage counselors in DFW follow a process for each couple they work with. This process follows a set of “rules” that we’re told is supposed to have the best outcome for our couples in marriage counseling. The same things are done each time. However, it doesn’t actually help every couple who pursues marriage counseling. In fact, for some, it makes things worse. Well, fortunately, I’m over the typical song and dance of what “we’re supposed to do” as marriage counselors. So, I do what works.

My Approach to Marriage Counseling in Texas

Right now, I am seeing most of my couples online. This allows me to see couples anywhere through the state with online therapy in Texas. Online marriage counseling in Dallas, TX has given me the ability to work with many couples throughout the state navigating issues that are impacting their relationship. I can work with couples in University Park, Bluffview, and Highland Park. In addition, I’ve worked with couples that have pursued online marriage counseling for a variety of different reasons. Through my experience with online marriage counseling and a marriage counselor, I’ve seen works with couples and what doesn’t. And, I’ve adjusted my approach to online marriage counseling accordingly.

Getting to Know your Relationship

The first step I take is to get to know you and your partner within your relationship. This means that I want to see what your relationship “looks like” with the dynamics, roles, and expectations. This is a really important piece for online marriage counseling in Dallas, TX because it can give me a lot of information. As an online marriage counselor, I’m curious to see the patterns that exist in your relationship. In addition, I’m curious to know how you interact with each other. As an online marriage counselor, this information is helpful for me when working with you and your partner.

Getting to Know You and Your Partner Separate from the Relationship in Online Couples Counseling

The second step is for me to get to know you and your partner separate from the relationship. In online marriage counseling in Dallas, TX, this step is vital in looking at the impact the relationship is having on you both. From my experience as a marriage counselor, working with each person in the relationship separately is often a really helpful opportunity. In addition, this gives you the opportunity to discuss aspects that you don’t feel comfortable discussing with your partner during a session for online marriage counseling.

 

Communicating Between You Both With Online Marriage Counseling

A piece that I think is missing from online couples counseling is bringing up the perspective of the other person when they’re not in session.  To do this, I use a release of information. This document gives me your permission to tell someone else specific information about a certain topic. This is a legal document that I have to abide by. If I don’t, I can get in serious trouble.

So, why this is document important for marriage counseling? This gives me your permission to discuss things during my individual therapy sessions with your partner that are relevant to your relationship during our work together. Through my experience as a marriage counselor in Dallas, TX, I have found this to be useful when working with couples because it often provides your partner with a different perspective that they haven’t considered before. I have found that this is often really helpful in marriage counseling.
