Can online couples counseling save a relationship?
An important function of the couple’s therapist is to observe the dynamics and patterns in the relationship in order to assist with skill-building and change. The couple’s therapist is not there to “save” the relationship or even have an opinion about whether or not the relationship should continue. The therapist will observe the couple’s interactions and listen to each individuals’ experiences in order to assess the areas of concern and where changes need to be made. It is the objective nature of the couple’s therapist that is the ally of the relationship and will guide interventions for aligning the couple in their shared goals and values.
