The Catholic Feminist

Sep 16, 2020

A few months ago I heard one of my favorite podcasters mention that she went to marriage counseling sometimes with her husband, and I’m embarrassed to admit that I was a bit…scandalized. I know! I stink. But in my mind, marriage therapy was for people who were, like, borderline divorce. It seemed awkward and shameful. And even though we’d had plenty of episodes on therapy, I realized I still had barriers built up around the idea of marriage counseling. Thankfully, marriage and family therapist Jessica Barboza could join me for a chat all about what marriage therapy is (and isn’t!) She’s also very passionate about the pre-cana experience and how our marriage prep classes often fail to truly prepare couples for the sacrament of marriage. This episode is perfect for any engaged women or women who have been struggling to communicate well with their husband and have been considering marriage therapy. I loved talking to Jessica and I’m honored to feature our conversation today—enjoy!
