Getting Started in Couples Therapy

I want to be very clear about the process of couples therapy so you can make an informed decision.

Distanced Couple

Couples therapy begins with a 4-step assessment because every relationship is different and every couple seeks therapy with a wide variety of needs, so it's very important that I am the right fit for you.

Session #1: 90-minute intake session with both partners to understand the issues in the relationship

Session #2: 60-minute individual session with one partner to understand his/her mental health history, relationship with parents, and the parental relationship/marriage

Session #3: 60-minute individual session with the other partner to understand his/her mental health history, relationship with parents, and the parental relationship/marriage

Session #4: 90-minute session to determine the issues to focus on in therapy and how we will work to resolve them
