Couples Counseling

My fee for a standard 50-minute session is $150 for couples. Payment options include cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express. I do not accept insurance. If you require a sliding scale fee, I have a limited number of spots available. Please contact me and I'll be happy to discuss your options. 

I utilize Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) when working with couples. EFT is an evidence-based model developed by Dr. Sue Johnson.

  • EFT helps to create a secure emotional bond with your partner.
  • EFT has over 20 years of empirical research.
  • Studies have shown that 70%-75% of couples “recover” and almost 90% improve significantly.
  • EFT is effective for all couples, straight or LGBTQ.

We all need secure emotional bonds so the healing process is similar for all of us. Emotion will be expressed differently by every couple and so EFT focuses on the unique interactions within each relationship in order to rekindle your bond with your partner. Additional information can be found at the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy.

Premarital Counseling

Haven't had your big day yet? I very much enjoy working with couples -- straight or gay -- as they prepare for marriage. Premarital work focuses on issues such as marriage myths, relationship expectations and goals, finances, communication, living arrangements, sexual and emotional intimacy, family, and children. Premarital counseling is psychoeducational and time-limited, usually 6-8 sessions.
