                Choosing An Expert Marriage Counselor

                                     From Cary, Huntley and McHenry

Each day, many people make an appointment with a counseling professional to resolve problems in their relationship. There are several professional groups who are qualified to provide marriage counseling.

Therefore, selecting the perfect marriage counselor may not be as easy as it may seem. It is not easy to find a marriage counselor when you do not know where to look.

Usually, one of the first places people look is the Yellow Pages. It will take time to find the best therapist for your situation.

Besides your local phone book, you can also find internet directories to help you by searching the words marriage counselor plus the name of your city.
Once you have located one in your area, schedule an initial consultation.

Attend the consultation with your spouse and disclose the details of your situation to your counselor upfront. Remember that almost all counseling professionals are trained to some extent to do relationship counseling, but not all choose to practice it.

Be sure the counselor you consult has many years experience at it. If the counselor you consult chooses not to treat you for some reason, he will, most likely, refer you to someone who will.

This individual may be another professional counselor or a highly trained doctor of psychology who concentrates his practice on treating marriages and families. This type of doctor is usually classified as a counseling or clinical psychologist.

Psychologists are mental health and counseling professionals who specialize in the treatment of emotional and behavior problems. These problems often include marriage, family and childrens problems.

What is a unique strength of most psychologists is that they tend not to just focus on only one type of situation or problem, like most ordinary counselors do. Many psychologists have the skills and the expertise necessary to use a number of different techniques to treat a number of different types of marriage problems.

These procedures may include cognitive behavioral therapy, rational-emotive therapy and behavior modification. This means that you may be provided with a greater range of professional expertise, when using the services of a psychologist.

When you are covered under health insurance, it is most cost-effective for you to find a counselor or a psychologist who is a member of your insurance companys panel. However, if you are without insurance, inquire specifically about fees and whether or not credit or debit cards are accepted.

By keeping the above points in mind, you should not only be able to find a marriage counselor who can treat your marriage troubles with great expertise, but you should also be able to find one who can do it at an affordable fee.
