I am licensed in VA, MD, DC, NJ, PA, CA and HI. If you live in any of these states I can work with you. Welcome and thank you for visiting my profile. To better serve my clients I have completed extensive post graduate training and supervision in couples counseling and sex therapy. Besides being a Gottman certified Therapist I am also certified in Imago and Sex Therapy (certified by the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists: www.assect.org). I have an international background and have lived and worked in many regions of the world, including Germany, France, Samoa and mainland China. I was principal of an international Montessori school in Beijing for six years while raising my three children.
I see clients in person only for intensive work (schedule at couplestherapyinc.com). Regular sessions are all online via Zoom. A good way to get started is to book a 5h Gottman Relationship Checkup. To schedule an initial session (50 min./$160, 90 min./$240) send me an email (email@example.com).
Some couples prefer to do intensive work over the course of several days. Retreats start on a Friday evening and are all day Saturday and Sunday. Midweek retreats (Tuesday to Thursday) are available as well. This retreat format allows for time and emotional space to focus exclusively on one couple. Retreats include a thorough pre-retreat assessment. For more information and to schedule visit www.CouplesTherapyInc.com.
I present the ‘Art and Science of Love’ workshop several times a year in Maryland. Sign up at https://www.kentlandspsychotherapy.com/couples-workshops/.
Life circumstances facilitated my desire to become a couples and sex therapist after a full career in education. Living through divorce instilled in me the desire to help couples work through tough times.
