I am able to bill directly for several insurance companies. Please confirm your benefits for couples/relationship counseling prior to coming in, so that we're not surprised later on.
You may be able to get reimbursed for all of part of your session fees through your out-of-network benefits or your healthcare savings account (HSA).
Working with couples is not only my specialty, it's my passion! Why do I love couples work so much? Because I truly believe that romantic relationships are a significant determinant (sometimes even the most significant determinant) of how satisfied we feel in our lives. When your relationship improves - and it can! - you will not only feel more solid in your connection to each other, you will feel stronger individually as well.
If your relationship has gone through tough times, you know how that emotional struggle can seep out into other areas of your life. Your work can suffer, it might be difficult to enjoy your free time, friends and family relationships may become strained, and your parenting abilities can plummet. It's just really difficult to shake your frustration, sadness, or worry when your partner feels like a stranger, or worse, an adversary.
Everyone says that the answer to relationship problems is "better communication," but when we work together I will help you build successful, research-proven relationship strategies that go farther and deeper than just how you talk to one another. Then you, too, will find you're as excited as I am to watch your relationship move from gridlock to freedom, from distance to closeness, and from aggravation to affection.
When we work together, I want you to feel assured that I see your relationship as my client, not one partner or the other. All parties contribute to the dynamic in a relationship, all parties have valid feelings and perspectives, and all parties will play a role in making things better.
My style is engaging, humorous, and genuine. I work hard to create an accepting, inviting atmosphere where you can feel comfortable being honest with me, with yourself, and with your partner. And I promise to be truthful with you as well! I understand the significant investment you're making, so I don't hold back with my clients because I want you to make improvements as quickly and effectively as possible.
