Confidentiality with couples
Counseling with couples is different because the client is identified as the couple. This means that as your counselor I am an ally for your relationship so I will help you reach a point where you are feeling comfortable together. I do not believe in keeping secrets because I cannot be an ally for the relationship if I am keeping vital information from each other. However, if one partner tells me something that is important for the other partner to know then I will help them find the best way to tell their partner the vital information. I want the relationship to succeed and I believe that if we work as a team then we can make that happen so you can get back on track to having a happy and fulfilling life as a couple.
