60 minute session

CURRENTLY TELEHEALTH APPOINTMENT ONLY-. Therapy sessions can vary based on what we discuss. I utilize Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques along with Interpersonal Therapy (IPT) for maternal mental health/perinatal mood disorders. For other clients, I tend to utilize Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy along with Solution-Focused Brief Therapy. I utilize exercises such as journaling, bibliotherapy, and thought logs.
Premarital Counseling/Couples Counseling
Premarital counseling is a type of therapy which helps couples prepare for marriage. It is recommended for any couple, even if there are no significant problems within the relationship. Some studies indicate increased marital satisfaction and decreased chances of divorce for those who engage in premarital counseling. This is another cost on top of wedding expenses but the cost of divorce is very high. It is a worthwhile investment in your marriage and future. I am a SYMBIS certified facilitator.

SYMBIS (Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts)
Not all SYMBIS Facilitators are Licensed Professional Counselors (LPCs). I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC); therefore, if there are specific areas that need further exploration, I have the skills to facilitate that beyond the general package. I typically like to do two sessions (i.e. two hours) in one meeting. For example, if you choose to pre-pay for 6 sessions, we would only need to meet three times for two hours each time.
