The term "Marriage Counseling" and "Couples Counseling" are often used interchangeably.
Yes, Your Insurance DOES pay for "Marriage Counseling."
Most insurances say they will not pay for Marriage Counseling. However, they will pay for "Family Counseling." Family Counseling is when the identified client brings one or more family members to the session to work on issues that may cause the client to exhibit various symptoms such as anxiety, depression, lack of sleep, anger, irritability, inability to focus, etc. When a client brings their spouse to the session and issues are addressed and resolved, this is referred to by almost everyone as "Marriage Counseling."
5 Reasons to talk to a Counselor/Therapist instead of a friend or family member about problems in your marriage
There are those that think: "Why should I pay a therapist when I can just talk to my friends or family about my marital issues."
With that being said, below are the top 5 reasons that you should talk to a counselor or therapist instead of friends or family about problems in your marriage.
1. Therapists have specialized training.
By going to a therapist, you are going to someone who has special training in helping people with your exact problem, so rather than covering up the issue, you will be able to attack it straight on. therapist sessions will also equip you with the tools required to resolve the issue or to be more aware of options you have in the future.
2. Therapists become long-term recover partners.
This builds on the last point, but therapists' end goal is for you to successfully overcome whatever issue you may have. they will be totally honest, sometimes brutally honest; which is something you need to get on your road to recovery and something a friend won't always feel comfortable doing. they aren't interested in temporary/quick fixes like most friends would be, but rather your long-term success.
3. You do not have to worry about being judged.
Let's face it, no matter how good of a friend you have, it is just human nature to judge. Many people do not like to reveal all of the real facts in front of their friends because they worry it will ruin their reputation. By going to a therapist, you are dealing with someone who hears issues like yours every day, still likes you and respects you even though you are not perfect (and who is?) and you will be able to easily open up to them. Being hones with the therapist means you are being honest with yourslef - the first step to resolving any issue.
4. Therapists have an outside, unbiased perspective.
Therapists are not a part of your everyday life, so they have the ability to have an open viewpoint without dealing with conflicting loyalties. (Friends and family often take sides and widn up making matters worse. In addition, if you tell them too much, they may hold what you told them against your spouse for weeks, months or years - long after you and your spouse have resolved the issue!)
5. You don't have to worry that your story will become gossip.
No matter how good a friend you have, there is always a chance that your story could get out to unwanted third parties. Going to a Licensed therapist means everything you say is strictly confidential, so using this method of resolving issues avoids the possiblity of too many people knowing your "business." Now you can focus on your recovery - not who hears your personal issues.

Marriage Counseling - Save Your Marriage, Learn How to Improve it!
Married life is a lot of work... We all know it. Life is so demanding nowdays, it does not always allow for the time and the mindset required to maintain a happy and healthy marriage. So if negativity fills your home, arguments, fights or you just feel like you are drifting apart, marriage counseling by a licensed therapist is the first step, and a major one at that, towards improving your situation.
Here are five common reasons to seek marriage/couple counseling:
1. When you feel that your kids are the only thing that is keeping you together. Children are hyper sensitive to the way you act to one another. Your children may very well pick up on your unhappiness and frustrations and it will have a negative effect on them. If you feel that you are staying together only for their sake, you maybe causing more damage than good. Marriage counseling can help you rekindle your love.
2. You and your spouse struggle to find common interests, common activities or find yourselves no longer having much to talk about. You feel that you have "grown apart." Marriage counseling can help yo ufind the way back to enjoy each other once again!
3. In cases of infidelity, it is very difficult to cope alone. Hurt and bitterness often get in the way. Marriage counseling can help you work through this complicated issue.
4. If you are experiencing consstant arguing and bickering that seems to be escalating - marriage counseling can help you communicate calmly agains and often show both of you that your differences are not as bad as they seem.
5. When you are having problems but you just don't know how the issues can be resolved. Often it's just because you have reached a standstill, an impasse. Once in a rut, it is often difficult to get out of it yourself. The good news? With qualified outside help, you find that your problems are perfectly solvable!
We look forward to working with you!
