How does counseling end?

How does a counselor decide when to end counseling sessions or to terminate working with a client?

I help couples manage the bumpy road called marriage. Whether your marriage needs a tune up, a major overhaul or just a flat tire changed. I can help.

From the very beginning of counseling sessions I emphasize that the work will and must end at some point.

In counseling there is an arc to the process. A beginning, middle and end. 

I am always digging, searching and exploring.

 There comes a point where things come to there natural ending.

I always leave an opening for continuing counseling in the future. At least as a check in.
