Our counseling sessions will use programs and tools that I have developed to help you with communication and conflict resolution skills. This is not talk therapy -- we will make progress!

It depends on your specific circumstances, but sometimes two or three sessions are enough, and other clients want to meet on a regular basis over several months.

A typical in-person or online session will be one hour in duration (many therapists only do 45 minutes). With couples or families, we will often do double sessions due to the complexities.

As a marriage counselor, I understand that investing in therapy can feel like a daunting decision. However, I want to assure you that the value you’ll receive from working with me is worth the investment. My hourly rate is $300, and I can confidently say that my previous clients have found this to be a worthwhile investment in their relationships. Through our work together, they have gained invaluable insight into themselves and their partners, developed communication and conflict resolution skills, and ultimately improved their overall quality of life. I believe that investing in your relationship is one of the best decisions you can make, and I would be honored to support you on this journey.

I am an out-of-network provider, and can provide a superbill after each session that you can submit to your insurance company. I have chosen not to accept insurance in order to avoid the restrictions and lack of privacy that can occur with insurance companies.
