Marriage therapy can be a very valuable resource for couples seeking to strengthen their relationship, improve communication, and navigate challenges. However, it can also make things even worse, so choosing the right therapist is essential to ensure that the therapy process is effective and beneficial.

Before just ‘jumping in”, couples should approach it like an interview, asking questions and considering important factors to make an informed decision. You can also ask yourself, do you really need a therapist? There are so many incredible tools and information that couple can explore that can often get their marriage back to an amazing place. We were one of these couples!

Here are some things to consider before going to a marriage therapist:

Aligning Beliefs and Values: It’s crucial to find a therapist who shares similar beliefs and values with you as a couple. Consider whether the therapist’s approach to therapy aligns with your cultural, religious, or personal beliefs. A therapist who respects and understands your worldview is more likely to provide guidance and support that resonates with your relationship.

Potential for Creating Issues: Some therapists may inadvertently create additional problems by focusing too heavily on uncovering underlying issues or assigning blame. Before starting therapy, discuss with your spouse any concerns you have about the therapist’s approach and ensure that they prioritize fostering constructive communication and problem-solving.

Personal Experience and Understanding: While therapists are trained professionals, personal experience can provide valuable insights and empathy. Consider whether the therapist has personal experience with the issues you’re facing in your marriage. A therapist who has overcome similar challenges in their own relationship may offer unique perspectives and understanding that can be beneficial to your therapy journey.

How can someone help you with something or offer insight if they have never experienced or gone through it themselves?

Therapist’s Background and Specialization: Research the therapist’s background, credentials, and areas of specialization to ensure they have the expertise to address your specific needs. Look for therapists who have experience working with couples and who are trained in evidence-based approaches to marriage therapy, such as Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) or Gottman Method Couples Therapy.

Compatibility and Rapport: The success of therapy often hinges on the rapport and connection between the therapist and the couple. Consider whether you feel comfortable and supported by the therapist during your initial consultation or intake session. Trust your instincts and choose a therapist with whom you feel a sense of rapport and understanding.

Financial Considerations: While therapy is an investment in your relationship, it’s essential to consider the financial aspect as well. Discuss the therapist’s fees, insurance coverage, and payment options upfront to ensure that therapy is financially feasible for your budget. Additionally, be wary of therapists who seem overly focused on keeping you in therapy for financial gain, rather than prioritizing your progress and well-being.

As a couple, take the time to discuss these considerations together and ask yourselves important questions before choosing a marriage therapist. Remember that your marriage is too important to leave to chance, and finding the right therapist can make all the difference in your journey towards a happier and healthier relationship.

After all.. you may very well be putting your future in their hands.
