Crisis lines

Couples ... or not

You’ll notice that there are far more services - legal and therapeutic - for folks who are splitting up than for couples who are invested in staying together. This is because insurance drives service delivery, and insurance covers individuals - not couples - counseling. If you have commercial insurance, consult with your individual therapist to see if there is a creative way to get around the “no couples” rule.
