As a Marriage & Family Therapist who co-taught adult Natural Family Planning for 12 years and taught abstinence education in area schools before becoming licensed as a therapist, Kay is comfortable talking about many sensitive and challenging topics. While she taught substance use prevention for many years, she refers current or prospective clients out when substance use potentially is considered excessive and would be better treated by a substance use expert.

Is it the right time to start couples counseling?  

Surprisingly, the answer may be “Not yet. Not until we get ourselves figures our individually first.”

One recent trend I’ve noticed among my fellow Marriage & Family Therapists is that better success in couples counseling or family counseling may be achieved if some core individual work occurs first. We may discover this during your 15-minute screen call, or it may become apparent after a few sessions of couples counseling. If you think you need time to work out some areas individually first, we encourage you to connect with us or another therapist to do this.

Recognize the signs that you may benefit from individual work before entering couples therapy. The following issues can cause serious issues in a marriage.

Let’s journey together to figure out what you need. You may be married or contemplating marriage. We can use a Prepare-Enrich or Gottman Relationship Checkup in the beginning to work from a position of strength and opportunities vs. focusing on what is wrong.
