My partner and I are having problems. Should we be in individual counseling or come together?
If you are concerned about your relationship, and you would both like to work with me, I would initially work with both of you together. After this work, if one of you would like to continue in individual sessions, I could work with only one of you or refer a therapist that can assist you. It is not helpful to move from individual into couple’s work with the same therapist because of potential trust issues.
