Couples Therapy & Education

You and your partner are great candidates for my couples therapy services if you answer yes to either of the following two questions. Couples therapy is utilized for both repair and for prevention.


Do you love your partner, but feel you’ve lost your connection?

Want to get it back? You’ve found the right place. If you feel as though you are spinning your wheels and struggling to make your relationship work, you are not alone. It’s completely normal to feel a loss of connection with your partner as the newness of a relationship wears off. As you grow and mature as a couple, each of you settles back in to who you were as an individual before you met. You are becoming comfortable with your partner, which is not a bad thing. However, this settling can give rise to conflict and disconnection. Here you can find ways to reconnect, manage conflict, and get your relationship back on track.

Do you have a strong relationship, and want it to continue?

If so, kudos to you! You are way ahead of the game. On average couples wait 6 years to seek therapy from the time they begin having significant relationship problems. That’s right, 6 years! Working on strengthening your relationship before significant problems arise is the best recipe for a healthy, long-term relationship. Here you will find inspiration to continue on your path. With this continued work, you are well on your way to becoming immune to the conflict and disconnection that long-term couples often encounter.

Couples Therapy consists of three different types of sessions: Intake & Assessment, Individual Sessions, and Couples Sessions. The Intake & Assessment and Individual Sessions are a one-time event, followed by Couples Sessions for the remainder of our time together. Below the sessions are explained in more detail.

Couples Session (Intake & Assessment) is the first session of couples therapy. During this one-time session, we will be getting to know each other, completing paperwork, reviewing policies, and completing an in-depth assessment of your relationship. After this session you will be invited to complete the Gottman Relationship Checkup, a one-time online assessment for couples. The cost of this assessment is included in the session fee.

90 Minutes

The Intake & Assessment Couples Session is a full 90 minutes.


The investment is $180 for the intake and assessment session, including the Gottman Relationship Checkup.

Individual Sessions (for Couples) are, just as you would imagine, individual sessions for those engaged in couples therapy. When you begin couples therapy with me, the second session will be shared and I will spend time with each of you individually to gain your unique perspective of the relationship. This is usually a one-time event during couples therapy.

90 Minutes (45 Minutes for Each Partner)

Individual Sessions for Couples are 45 minutes, as the 90 minute session is divided.

$150 ($75 each session)

The investment is $150 for these two sessions, $75 for each session.

Couples Sessions are for couples therapy and begin at the third session, and will continue throughout our time together.

Couples Sessions are a full 90 minutes.
