Marital Therapy

Marital therapy is a treatment designed to help improve a marriage by increasing communication and understanding between married partners. This type of therapy is performed in a variety of settings, from group sessions with several couples, to individual meetings with each partner to discuss issues they may be afraid to raise in front of their spouse. Marital therapy usually takes place under the guidance of psychologist, often one who specializes in marriage and family therapy.
