Couples Counseling Genetics

Couples Counseling GeneticsWhen a relationship is in trouble and you wish to explore therapy, you and your partner will want to find the best couples counselor for your needs. Otherwise, if you are not willing to find a therapist, you may decide to end a relationship that is actually worth saving. At Lindsey Hoskins & Associates, we have several therapists on staff, each of whom offers a unique perspective and set of tools for helping couples work through challenges in their relationship.

Tips for Finding the Best Couples Counseling

When it comes to the “best” of anything, that’s a subjective term, even when it comes to finding a couples counseling. In fact, someone who might be the best counselor for you may not be the best for your partner or vice versa. However, to find one who is the best possible fit for both of you, consider the following when choosing a couples counselor:

1.    Ask if they have experience helping clients with the specific issues, such as genetics, you and your partner would like to address.
2.    Ask how they help clients who are dealing with the challenges you and your partner are facing.
3.    Ask if you can switch therapists if the one you choose turns out to not be a good fit.
4.    Ask if they offer one-on-one sessions as well as couples sessions if at some point you wish to have that instead, or in conjunction with couples therapy.
5.    Ask if they offer multiple session therapy packages or if they only charge for each appointment at no discount.
6.    Ask what they charge per session as well as for other therapy options such as multiple sessions.
7.    Ask about their cancellation and rescheduling policy.
8.    Ask where they are located and options for parking or proximity to local bus stops and routes.

Commitment to Couples Counseling

When it comes to couples counseling, even the best couples counselor will not be effective if you and your partner are not willing to invest yourselves in the effort. Depending on the issues you wish to focus on, very likely both of you will have to be open to taking responsibility for your actions and be open to changing your behavior. During your first session with your therapist, they may be able to give you an idea as to how many sessions you may need, but the assumption is that you and your partner will be engaged in the therapy.

It may also be helpful for the process if you as well as your partner simultaneously engage in individual therapy. This can be discussed at any time during your couples counseling sessions.
