Dr. Maryanna Ham, one of 28 clinicians, has written and published extensively on topics such as culturally relevant ethical decision-making and multi-cultural aspect of counseling.
Now, maintaining a happy marital life can be especially challenging. More so if you're moved and now live internationally. You've had to master not only how to live together, but do it on the move at lightening speed. You've had to grow and change together. Be willing and open to engage in new rituals and practices. Pick up (another) language.
But sometimes you face barriers that you can’t seem to climb over. We know. We've lived that life, too.
Like you, we know the challenge of living internationally. Or extensive job travel. The strains of raising kids in Beijing, Frankfurt, or London. The annual moves to visit family from Sydney to Dublin and back home again. Vancouver to Taiwan to Los Angeles.
Couples Therapy Inc. is a genuine international practice of relationship counselors online. Our monthly meetings span the globe happening over 11-time zones.

...sometimes the nature of a cosmopolitan lifestyle gives you international sensibilities. A global perspective. Traveling and interacting with people all over the world as part of your job. We get it. We've lived it.

We do bilingual marriage counseling and offer "skype therapy," only better.
What is an ‘International Couple?'
An International Couple can be defined in a number of ways. Sometimes each partner is from a different country or culture. Sometimes they are from the same country but live together in a foreign land. Or sometimes the nature of their cosmopolitan lifestyle gives them international sensibilities. A global perspective.
Many students now travel around the world to study and learn. This can strain their relationship. They must learn a new language and adjust to new customs. Sometimes their partner lacks the opportunity to keep up, and feels lonely and misses home.
” It has worked for us...It's that simple. ”
This would be an option I'd highly recommend to anyone who needs couples therapy, especially as expats living outside of the USA.

Using a secure video-conferencing program well is more than plugging in technology.
