Searching for meaningful change in your relationship? Ready to go beyond surface-level interventions and reach for a deep, substantive transformation? I'm here to guide you. As a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, I specialize exclusively in couples therapy, offering a premium service based on the scientifically-proven Gottman Method.

My name is Rick, and I operate a unique, small practice from a cozy and dedicated space within my home. This isn't your standard therapy setup — it's a place where you and your partner can feel comfortable and safe as we navigate the complexities of your relationship together.

I take great pride in the quality of my work and focus on depth, not breadth. Unlike large practices, where therapists juggle multiple clients and divide their attention, I keep my clientele deliberately limited. I am committed to providing each of my couples the time, energy, and focus they truly deserve.

I invest approximately 12 hours in the assessment process alone. This includes an in-depth, 4.5-hour in-person evaluation. The remainder of the time is spent meticulously reviewing videos, studying your completed measures on Gottman Connect, and taking extensive notes. And when I say 'studying,' I mean it. I scrutinize every word you write, ensuring I fully comprehend your dynamics and can offer the most insightful, tailored interventions possible.

While my services come at a premium price, this reflects the dedication, time, and personalized attention each couple receives. The investment in your relationship is worth it — to get to the heart of your challenges, to uncover the love that still exists, and to help you build a healthier, happier future together.

You deserve more than a quick fix or a cookie-cutter approach. Experience the depth of understanding and change from focused, dedicated, and personalized therapy. Welcome to my practice - let's start the journey towards lasting change together.
