Marriage and family therapists are considered to be and recognized as one of the main avenues of achieving mental health in the professional psychotherapy realm.
Marriage counseling involves both the health of two individuals, in addition to the couple’s relationship well-being. Oftentimes, marriage counseling involves individual work, sometimes with the same therapist, other times with different therapists. Either way, as the couple seeks to heal their relationship wounds with a licensed MFT, they can experience healing individually.
Throughout the medical and psychotherapy fields, more and more studies are finding the influence one’s marriage has on their own mental health and vice versa. We are embedded in relationships and cannot escape the immense feelings and vital life experiences that directly impact how we feel, act, and proceed in our personal and professional lives. The interactive cycle of our thoughts, feelings, and actions in conjunction with another’s plays a big role in our mental health and therefore, seeking marriage counseling can be extremely helpful and necessary.
When your marriage is healthy, your mental health improves overall. If you’d like to speak with a Marriage and Family Therapist, please call (813) 812-5525 today to schedule a FREE consultation.
