Re: Divorced Marriage Therapist
Unfortunately therapists don't have certifications about their own relationship skills. I would pause and want to know the circumstances of her divorce but its not good for every client to need to ask that. Some therapists may not have good advice because they are not capable of picking a good partner and making their relationships successful, no matter what they learned in school. It would be nice if there was a 3rd party certification process that vetted their relationship skills, but that could still include divorcing a partner who is destructive. Divorce in and of itself doesn't mean much until you know the full situation.
But yes, I would personally be cautious about the advice she was giving me if I didn't know why she was divorced. Maybe use therapists for individual growth and basic communication skills with others.
