If you have a good counselor and are willing to do the work involved in facing your own demons, if you are patient with it, I think that IC can be great. I tried several therapists before I found one that I felt comfortable talking to, so in many ways, this has to do with personal disposition. If both you and your H feel a therapeutic connection with the IC, then there's a chance it will work, but....instead, why not just see the IC and see where it goes and let your H go to IC, as well. Then, when you both are more comfortable talking about things, you can both go to an MC together?
I've been struggling with a really debilitating depression since my marriage fell apart and I have to say that having an IC has helped me a lot. Having someone on your side to hear what you're going through and urge you to look at your life without relying on old patterns can be freeing. So, I would encourage you to do it, regardless of whether or not the MC is going to happen, just for the sake of helping you get past your depression.
