Marriage Counseling that fails

Sadly, many forms of relationship counseling actually do more harm than good. This means that desperate families, who spend time trying to save their marriage are actually harmed by doing so.

What’s the difference between a marriage therapist and a counselor?

Essentially, in every day language, counselors are trained to simply listen and help you solve the problem yourself.  Therapists, on the other hand, are trained to identify patterns, bring insight, and develop a plan of action and change with you.  They are generally more highly trained and specialized and statistically have a higher success rate.
