Your video brought tears to my eyes. Marriage counseling is indeed a special calling. My story is similar to yours in that I also learned to be a healer from watching my parents and experiencing the pain that marital discord creates. One of my professors in grad school used to say "Marriage therapists are born, not made. If you weren't born into the profession, there's nothing I can do to teach you." As the years go by and I see colleagues drop out of the field because of stress and burnout, I agree with him more and more. I wish you well in your practice and your destiny!

That also means you might say something you know will hurt your spouse and regret. Dr. Karen Sherman shares advice on how to handle the situation where you say something you regret.
