I have been in private practice for 35 years. I am very well trained and very experienced. I work with anyone who comes into my office, no matter their problem. I have developed expertise in many areas over the years. My fee per in-office session is $135.00/hr to $165.00/hr.
Couples and Marriage Therapy
HAPPY MARRIAGES ARE POSSIBLE!
My Therapy Program: Two-hour sessions once per week for three months.
I have studied every aspect of marriage therapy--from pre-marital therapy to co-parenting for divorced parents. This is a huge scope along a single spectrum of couples therapies and coaching. Currently, I am most interested in helping marriages stay together, using divorce-busting techniques. I also can work with only one partner and help them improve the marriage with solo efforts.
In my office the relationship is the "patient" and each partner is a contributor to this "bank." The type of "deposits" made directly impact the well-being of the "bank." The defensive, confused, and resentful deposits hurt my "patient". Consistent acts of FIERCE INTIMACY: honesty, vulnerability, compassion, “adulting,” and connection make my "patient" healthier. Much of this work depends upon the individual changes and growth each contributor is willing to do in my office.
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing for trauma and profound change
EMDR is a power-therapy. It can be done in a few sessions and help you reverse the distorted aspects of unresolved trauma, anxiety, addictions, OCD, and many other personal struggles.
EMDR acts as re-wiring of the brain. This re-programming is necessary to heal and correct the way the brain has tried for years to adapt and compensate for trauma or strangulating disorders that keep you stuck. This “stuckness” causes distorted thinking, feelings, and reactive behaviors. Brief and intensive healing is possible!
I will be glad to send you more information about EMDR and how it works.
