Individual Therapy



Out of Network and Out of Pocket Fees: 

$135-$250 depending on session length and type.

The first session will consist of a comprehensive assessment, where you and your  therapist and decide if working together is a good fit (If not, please tell us!). 

We offer a variety of counseling approaches and will work diligently with you to determine a treatment path that is best for you.  Since we don't work with insurance companies, we can tailor your treatment to your needs, rather than a diagnosis. 

Active military or working within the parameters of a security clearance? Our practice can help you without a diagnosis that would impact your career.  Ask us about this during your first session.

Couples Therapy
Evidence Based Therapy to help your relationship thrive.

Out of Network and Out of Pocket Fees: 

$205-275 depending on session length and type. 


When I schedule a couples session, what can I expect?

Session 1: 

60-90 minute comprehensive assessment.​

This session is spent getting to know you as a couple, gathering your relationship history, getting an understanding of the problems that brought you to me, and inquiring about your goals for the therapy.  We will do a brief intervention to examine your conflict style and build more effective communication.  

Session 2: Individual Consultations 

90 minute session

This session is split in half with each partner having approximately 45 minutes; in accordance with my training in the Gottman Method, I ask a series of standardized questions to each partner.  While we have a no-secrets policy, this is a time for partners to be candid with their therapist about their relationship stressors.

Optional: The Gottman Relationship Assessment

You will be given the opportunity to complete the evidence based Gottman Relationship Checkup. This tool is valuable for establishing the strengths and challenges in your relationship, examining how each partner communicates, and it gives your therapist a road-map for the therapy with individualized treatment goals and interventions best suited to your needs. Additional Cost: $39 (this is billed by the Gottman Institute, not the therapist or the practice).

Session 3: 

Feedback session, review of Gottman Relationship Checkup (if selected).  

Treatment planning and examining interventions that will be beneficial to your relationship. 

If time allows, we will continue with specific communication skills and conflict management techniques.

Sessions 4 and onward:

This is where the work gets deeper.  We will begin to examine the inner workings of your relationship, the "very good reasons" that you each communicate the way you do, and how to improve your connection through Emotionally Focused Therapy and specific Gottman Interventions that are relevant to your specific relationship.  Your feedback is a powerful part of this process, and we will check in with progress and challenges at each session.  Homework may be assigned.

GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

• You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.

• Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.

• If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
