If you are religious or attend a church or other religious organization, talk to your pastor, ministor, or rabbi. Most likely, marital counseling is a service that the church will offer you for free, or for a donation to the church. If you do not belong to a church, consult with a non profit agency like womenspace; or a communithy college. These organizations have resources manuals and can give you the names of no or low cost counselors near you. You may also find that your insurance covers mental health (some public insurances do); and you can get the information from your insurance provider. Calling around to different clinics in the yellow pages will also give you some ideas. Write down the pros and cons of each as you do your research. If you need the counseling right away, make this known to the receptionists you speak to, and go with the first available appointment. Have patience, sometimes it can take a few weeks to get in for an intake. After this, the process will flow more smoothly. It is OK to try different therapists until you find one that works well for you.
