Marriage Therapy: Doing More Harm Than Good?

9. Finally, the best way to find a good therapist is through word of mouth. Nothing says more about the quality of therapy you will receive than the feedback of satisfied customers. Although you might feel embarrassed to ask friends or family for a referral, you should consider doing it anyway. It increases the odds you'll find a therapist who will really help you and your spouse.

So don't give up on therapy '- give up on bad therapy. You be the judge of what works for you. There's a lot to be gained from seeking the advice of a third party who can help you find simple solutions to life's complicated problems.
