Couples seeking relationship therapy must be careful about who they choose to entrust their relationship life to. As in any other fields – all Couple Therapists are not equal. Many are under trained and inexperienced to work with the complexities of modern relationships – regardless of how they may advertise themselves. Who you choose as your relationship therapist is one of the most important decisions you will make in your lifetime. Dr Madigan invites you to choose carefully.
