How do/did you logistically see a marriage counselor?
Hi - I feel like it might be in me and my husband's best interest to see a marriage counselor, at least for a few times. My question, however, is how do people logistically do this?? We both work full time and have two little kids. Do people see counselors at night? If so, do you just suck it up and pay a baby sitter each time I guess... I don't know how much a therapist is, but I'm guessing we're talking several hundred dollars a session then (when you factor in the baby sitter)? (And that would then more or less come at the expense of us being able to go out to do something fun another night, which doesn't seem in our best interest either, but I guess it is what it is)? Also if someone has done this, do you have any specific recommendations for marriage counselors in Oakland or Berkeley that see people in the evening?
Otherwise, we work nearby each other in the same city, but to try to go, say, during a "lunch" hour would seem weird to go and potentially have some emotional discussion and then both of us go back to work. Right? Or am I overthinking that?
Any tips or simply an example of what you have done in the past would be helpful.
