My goal as a couples therapist is not to be a mediator but to act as a detective, teacher and coach. I will help you gain awareness to problematic patterns in your relationship and will help you generate personalized problem-solving strategies through teaching hands-on, practical tools and skills aimed at stopping the downward spiral in your relationship that can result from long standing conflict, infidelity, lack of connection through decrease in emotional or physical intimacy, and difficulty communicating wants, needs and feelings to your partner.
Couples Therapy Fees: $175/90 min. initial assessment, $100/50 min. session, $125/90 min. session. Sliding scale is available for those paying out of pocket with a demonstrated financial need.
Whether your family is struggling with communication, establishing rules and boundaries, how to cope with a blended family, coping with divorce, separation or loss in the family, I will help you gain awareness to the problems and patterns and help you, as a family, learn and practice strategies to help you meet your goals together. I also work with families that are struggling with how to respond to a family member who has been diagnosed with a personality disorder or other mental health diagnosis.
