Dr. Lisa Saponaro answered:

Is online counseling effective?

In person better

Open-uri20120903-6722-dvfuoo
Online counseling can be effective, especially when there is a live visual component so that the participants can read non-verbals. In person counseling offers more to both the person and the therapist. If there are barriers that prevent one from attending in person, it is better than not getting treatment but I strongly recommend in person services if/when available.

How effective is online counseling?

So so

Counseling
Online counseling is frowned upon and in some states not permitted. Advice over the phone computer is fine. In fact, I'm giving some right now!! However counseling implies repeated sessions and more detailed and significant work. As such, you need to be prudent.

Where can I get premarital counseling?

Premarital counsel

Married
Depends on a few things. If you are Catholic and are getting married in the church, you and your fiancé would be required to take Pre-Cana courses. Otherwise, Other faiths may have similar programs. I'm happy to hear that you are thinking about seeking some kind of guidance PRIOR to making a big decision.

What happens during genetic counseling?

Long History

You can expect a long appointment that goes into depth on you and your partners family history. Your personal risks will be evaluated and a detailed family tree built if there are any inherited conditions in the family. Tests such as blood tests, ultrasound, amniocentesis and CVS will be explained if ti relates to pregnancy. Other tests will be explained if it is related to gyn cancers.

What's the purpose of genetic counseling?

Information sharing.

Open-uri20120805-22618-13x4evl
Genetic counseling helps the uninitiated to understand aspects of the exploding field of human genetics, as they pertain to personal and/or family history of inherited disorders, or to potential risks for vertical transmission of pathogenic traits across generations. It helps choose (or not) appropriate testing to confirm or refute a particular genetic condition and to thus prevent complications.

My future husband won't go to counseling.?

Why not?

Counseling
I guess this could be a bad sign if you're already having problems and your future husband refuses to address them. Couple relationship problems are common, yet if you are with a man who refuses to work on them, this may be a sign of what's to come in the long haul. Sounds to me like you may need to have a serious discussion about your concerns before proceeding.

What to expect from bereavement counseling?

Facilitates process

Marriage_counseling
Education about the stages of grief, + support and validation about your emotional process, + assistance getting "unstuck" if "stuck" in a "complicated bereavement". Once unstuck, the psyche/spirit has an innate/natural ability to grieve, heal and move into acceptance.
