The online alternative to marriage counseling

Online relationship counseling – Get help the way you want it.

Are you looking for online marriage counseling because you're struggling with relationship or marriage problems? Are you too busy or too broke for couples counseling? Are you less than excited about sitting in a room and discussing your relationship with a total stranger?

When we designed the Power of Two, we started by interviewing all kinds of couples (dating, engaged, and married) that were looking for online couples therapy. Then, we got a grant from the Federal Department of Health and Human Services, and built what we heard they wanted.

Here's a comparison between our program and other online therapy options.

Convenience & scheduling

One advantage of getting help for relationship problems online is that you don’t have to schedule an appointment.

Other Options:

If you’re considering getting counseling online by phone or IM from an individual therapist, even if you’re able to start your first therapy session whenever you want, if you find a marriage counselor you like, for any follow up discussions you’ll still have to find a time that works for their schedule.

Power of Two Online:

Get 24x7 access. Learn communicate skills, eliminate fighting, and build intimacy through short 5-10 minute activities that you can do on your lunch break or before you go to bed at night. And, get personalized attention from a trained relationship coach by email.

Quality care

If you’re looking for online marriage counseling, how can you know if the therapist giving you relationship advice has any real skills or expertise in couples counseling?

Other Options:

For many couples, the online counseling they receive is by poorly trained and unskilled therapists, and it actually ends up making their marriage worse.

Power of Two:

This program was originally written by Harvard educated and world-renowned author, family clinical psychologist Dr. Susan Heitler. She is commonly quoted by national media including national news programs like the CBS Morning Show and Fox News, by women’s magazines like Ladies Home Journal, Cosmopolitan, and Oprah.com, by men’s magazine’s like Men’s Health, and by psychology magazines like Psychology Today and Parenting Weekly. And, her books are often used in universities around the world to teach therapists how to do quality couples counseling.

Affordable

Are you hoping that you’ll find less expensive help online?

Other Options:

Other online relationship counseling options cost at least $2/min, which is $120/hour. That’s just as expensive as face-to-face counseling.

Power of Two:

Membership is, well… super cheap. It’s designed so that all of the core skills are taught through engaging short videos, worksheets, and interactive exercises. That means your only paying for your live relationship coach to listen to your specific needs, and customize the program for you. They’re also available to answer your questions by email.

So you’re still getting personalized attention like you would in regular online counseling services, but you get way more bang for your buck!

Privacy

Like other online relationship counseling options, with the Power of Two Online you don’t have to sit in a counselor’s waiting room with other patients, you’re not going to accidentally run into someone you know at the doctor’s office, and you don’t have to sit in a room with a total stranger and talk about your marriage.
