Online Marriage Counseling via Skype
We are excited to be able to share marriage counseling sessions over the internet with our clients through our online marriage counseling option. Healing broken marriages in great need of repair is what we do best and if your marriage is in great need of repair, don’t let distance deter you from regaining the relationship you once had and getting the best help out there.
While we would love to work with you and your spouse personally, the next best option is online marriage counseling.
Concerned about how effective it is?
Because we exclusively practice Imago therapy, in our marriage counseling sessions you talk to your spouse directly, communicating and connecting with him/her sitting knee to knee, while looking deeply into each others eyes. So while you will be able to talk to me like you would in my local Maryland office, the majority of the work is going to be through you and your spouse dialoguing, making the distance a non-issue. We’re there to make sure the energy between you both is safe and to guide you naturally along in the process but there’s actually very little back and forth with the therapist because restoring your connection needs to happen between the two of you. That’s the beauty of our work! And if you’ve ever gone to marriage counseling that didn’t work, most likely that was due to the therapist not facilitating healing between the two of you, but serving as “mediator” or “negotiator”. That approach simply does not work.
Here’s a quote from a recent interview we gave about online marriage counseling.
As a Rabbi, I firmly believe in the importance of helping marriages flourish. As an Imago therapist, I have the skills necessary to turn that belief into a changed reality. With the new Skype option, we’re extending our reach to couples located across the United States and around the world so that everyone can benefit from our expertise regardless of where they’re located,” said Rabbi Shlomo Slatkin, MS, LCPC, and Certified Imago Relationship Therapist.
So how does online marriage counseling actually work?
Online marriage counseling requires nothing more than high speed internet and a webcam, which makes it easily accessible to many couples. Skype sessions are available to couples located anywhere in the United States as there’s no gas usage, travel time, or traffic concerns, and they can even be utilized by those living in other countries. Plus, Skype counseling allows couples with young children to get the help they seek without having to hire a babysitter.
As with any therapist, all sessions with The Relationship Rabbi are completely confidential regardless of whether they take place in person, over the phone, or via the internet. Online marriage counseling via Skype adds an extra layer of privacy, making it ideal for those who are particularly concerned.
Many therapists rely on back-to-back appointment scheduling, which is less than ideal as clients may see other as they enter or exit the building. Online marriage counseling avoids this issue entirely, ensuring complete privacy regardless of how precisely the schedules are booked. For those that are not from Baltimore, there is an additional layer of comfort that comes from knowing that they will not run into their therapist around town as they run shop, dine, or run errands.
One of my favorite benefits of online marriage counseling sessions is that the calm you experience during your session begins to permeate your home and benefits others that enter your home. That sense of calm will help your children and will stay with you long after your session. We all need calm in our busy, hectic lives.
