All of our therapists have science-based training in helping troubled relationships succeed. Our goal is to bring you the tools and methods you can apply to see concrete results. We are aware that not every relationship will benefit from every therapeutic approach, not even an evidence-based approach. In some cases, individual therapy or psychopharmacology is needed to treat underlying issues like depression, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, childhood trauma, or substance abuse. If your couples therapist at Couples Therapy Inc. is unable to help you, either in an intensive couples retreat or in ongoing online couples therapy, they will explain, in understandable language, why that is the case.
If you are unhappy with any aspect of your contact with Couples Therapy Inc, and have a complaint, charge, or allegation, we definitely want to know.
We pride ourselves in being devoted to caring, effective, and compassionate work.
Here are the steps you can take to resolve your issues more impactfully:
If you believe that an ethical or legal action is necessary, we provide you with a list of professional boards in each state, for you to reach out to and file a formal complaint below. We also provide information if you are working with one of our International couples therapists.
Be aware that in the USA, your identity and the nature of these complaints, will not be kept in confidence, if you are the person initiating the complaint. You may be asked to sign a release of information, allowing the Board to request and review your clinical records from your therapist directly. They may also interview the couples therapist. This process or others will be used by the Board to investigate and to determine if an ethical or legal violation has occurred, and if so, what actions should be taken. If the psychotherapist is found guilty of unethical or illegal behavior by the Board, sanctions, fines, or even the suspension or removal of the psychotherapist's license may occur. For legal violations, the case may be referred to the Attorney General for prosecution.
To use the list below, first, locate the profession of the couples therapist you saw on our Team page and make note of the state(s) where they are licensed and their license number(s).
If the therapist is not yet licensed, you will see their supervisor's name and license. A supervisor should be contacted directly, prior to contacting the Board, if you have worked with a couples therapist who is not yet independently licensed. They hold legal responsibility for the quality of care their supervisee's provide.
Next, click the corresponding link below for a full list of licensing boards across the USA and contact them in writing, by telephone, or by fax.
We value your trust, and each of us strive to live up to the highest aspirational goals of our profession. Thank you for working with Couples Therapy Inc., and we look forward to working with you, and continuing to help you and your relationship excel whenever possible.
