When couples arrive on my doorstep for couples counseling in Midtown Manhattan or in White Plains, NY, a wife sometimes surprises me by saying, “He’s been trying to get me into marriage counseling for years and I refused. I just didn’t think we needed it.”
Usually, it’s women who want to get their husband to read all those books and realize that he can’t do feelings.
Let this be a warning to you — Men don’t usually want to darken the door of counseling. If he’s requesting it, believe in his sincerity. He’s serious. Don’t blow him off.
