I'm ready to make an appt with a marriage counselor. My husband's therapist recommended someone who does Imago
counseling but, honestly, I'm scared to do that. My husband was diagnosed with bipolar about a year ago and now that that is stable, I'm seeing what his triggers are and I just have a gut feeling that it might be too much for him.
Also, it looks like marriage counseling is usually not covered by insurance but I saw on one site that if one spouse has a diagnosis, it might be.
So my questions:
1) Has anyone here done Imago? If so, how intense was it?
2) Are there any other types of marriage counseling? In other words, should I be looking for a specific type that I think will work well with our personalities (e.g., my husband does better with CBT than he does with talking about his childhood.)?
3) Has anyone had success in getting insurance to pay for it?
4) While we're at it does anyone have recommendations for counselors in middle Tennessee?
I know that every situation/therapist/insurance company is different but I just wondered what your experience might be.
