Mostly weekdays, with some eve appt.'s available. Weekend marathon sessions available
I love the chance to help couples improve their relationships and learn to function more as a team. I can help couples work on their most challenging and long standing issues, which is often a huge relief to couples who have had the same fight about the same issue over and over again.
I am proud to be a Master Trainer with the Gottman Institute, which means I train other therapists in all 3 levels of the method and provide consultation for the certification track. I provide marathon therapy as well.
My education is from Portland State University, where I obtained my Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2005. I have worked in the mental health field for over 20 years, in the capacity of a case worker, recreation therapist, adventure guide and mediator. I am now lucky enough to be a practicing therapist working mainly with couples in my private practice.
My rates are:
$250 for the first assessment session, then $200/ hour. Longer sessions are available and are often helpful in couples therapy:
Couples with high conflict, couples who are dealing with infidelity, addiction & PTSD.
