Have you been thinking that it might be time to try Couples Therapy?
When you feel connected with your partner life feels manageable and even exciting.
You used to love doing things together. Traveling, going out, hiking, going to the beach. It didn’t matter. It was fun and you felt joy just being together.
You have both worked so hard to be successful in life, but lately you haven’t been feeling very successful with each other.
You want your partner to understand that you still care. You still love him/her! When you try to communicate that love, it hasn’t been working.
You don’t know how to get back to feeling joy again. You need something that will give you the opportunity to see if that is possible with your husband/wife again.
Couples Therapy is an experience that has the potential to change the direction of your life. I want to help give you the tools to feel seen and understood by your partner.
The Couples Therapy Experience
In the time I have worked with couples I have found that it is extremely important for couples to commit to coming every week for at least the first 10 weeks.
Here is what the first few sessions will look like:
- The intake will be with both of you and last 45 minutes.
- Then I will meet with each of you individually for 45 minute sessions.
- We will then come back together and plan to meet weekly for the next several weeks.
It is most helpful if these first 4 sessions can happen within the first 2-3 weeks.
At this point most couples benefit most by meeting weekly for 45 minute sessions for 8-10 more weeks.
Many people find that longer sessions can be much more beneficial. If you would like to make progress more quickly we can also schedule 75 minute sessions.
45 minute sessions are $130
75 minute sessions are $195
