A co-worker that I have known for several years has been having troubles in her recent relationship even before they get married. Their wedding date is scheduled to take place this autumn, which is really approaching quickly and now they are falling apart. After numerous talks with her, I am glad to see that she is finally receiving some professional counseling, it just took me by surprise when she told me that she is doing on-line and on her lunch breaks. That explains why we don’t see her too much around noontime anymore, bless her heart she has been in the other back room that has a PC set up so that employees may utilize it for their personal use, not the PCs at their work stations.
It seems that she is trying to get her finance into some counseling also, that has become a challenge, and not unusual, but in the mean time she is getting herself established with her counselor, Dr. Marty, while trying to keep the relationship from getting worse.
Now at our breaks, she talks to me a lot About Couples Counseling and how glad that she is doing the sessions on-line, and she assures me that the location of the counselor really isn’t important because they offer free-phone sessions also, so you can have the opportunity to speak to a human voice if when needed/wanted, that’s plus.
Dr. Marty has been a practicing therapist for over 30 years and does a variety of counseling, his web site is pretty impressive, www.yourmarriagecounselor.com and they are located in N.J. While they see patients in the office, they do a good amount on-line and via their toll free phone number. So, Dr. Marty offers counseling sessions locally and across the country.
Personally I think all couples should receive premarital counseling, I know several couples that did and they are still married to this day. Don’t care how long you have known each other and even if you have been living together, signing that legal piece of paper is a heavy responsibility that is so easy to get into and can be very troublesome getting out of. Boy, I sound a bit like a preacher/mother, ugh!!!
