SCHEDULE A SESSION/INTENSIVE 

"You can't know where life will take you, but you can commit to a direction."
Wendell Berry

I appreciate that it can be difficult to reach out for help. Let me assure you that my style is warm, caring, and responsive. I know that nobody feels better when feeling judged, and I also know that a little humor goes a long way when people are engaged in this work. We are, after all, only and beautifully human.  I begin with a brief consultation so we may both determine whether working together would be a good fit and how I can best meet your needs: Individual Psychotherapy, Couples Therapy or an Intensive?  

Therapy Sessions 

For couples therapy sessions, I recommend 75 or 90 minute sessions. For intensives, there is a One Day or a Two Day session, which I have outlined below. We can discuss the best option for you when you contact me.  When you are ready to move forward, I kindly ask that you fill out the forms below and send them to me prior to our meeting so that we may optimize our time.  

Intensives 

A Couples Intensive is an opportunity to do in-depth transformation of your relationship. This work is truly transformative because it shows you how to move from fear to love in your relationship.  An intensive could be right for you if:

  • It is difficult for you to schedule weekly appointments
  • You are in crisis
  • You know or believe that you would benefit from longer sessions, one half-day, in order to go deeper into your relationship

An Encounter-centered Couples Intensive is comprised of a series of dialogs designed to move your experience of your relationship from alienation to understanding and connection. It is profound for both individuals, and is life-changing for your relationship. An ideal Encounter-centered Couples Intensive is a Two-Day Private Session. If that does not “fit” you, as a couple, or in your schedule, the progression of elements of that Two-Day Intensive can be broken up into segments.

When you are ready to move forward, I kindly ask that you fill out the forms below and send them to me prior to our meeting so that we may optimize our time.  

Pre-Marital Intensives

This is a wonderful way to prepare yourselves for this beautiful and significant commitment! In a One or Two-day Intensive, you will:

  • Share your biggest, wildest relationship dreams and put them on the horizon together
  • Identify areas of struggle, and untangle those knots NOW!
  • Learn the skills you will need to keep your relationship loving, alive, passionate and harmonious
  • Gain practical tools to dissolve conflict
  • Learn to stay connected through your essential and authentic selves, to remain close and caring friends to each other in your marriage.
