Official Directory of Discernment Counselors
If this is you, or your spouse, then traditional marriage counseling may fail because one of you is unsure about staying or leaving. The better service for your situation is called Discernment Counseling.
Designed as a short-term, clarity-seeking process with a trained marriage expert, you will both be supported over 1-5 sessions. The goal is simply to decide what action to take next, whether that be to work on the marriage, separate/divorce, or in some couples, they get their marriage off the divorce track but do not decide to pursue more intensive therapy.
We strongly encourage you to consider adjusting your calendar and traveling within your state, if necessary, to see the one nearest to you. This is a short-term, powerful way to gain a deeper understanding of your marriage. Should you both chose to pursue marriage counseling, that can be done with someone closer to you.
