How We Begin: Couples
The first session is an initial consultation to explore the obstacles that inspire you to reach out for support, your vision of what is possible, and an orientation to the inner and outer resources you might access to move from the dance you’re in, to the dance you want to be in. Before our session, I will email you an invitation to set up your client portal account with TheraNest, the practice management site I use. You will submit a few intake forms through your client portal before our first session begins, and will receive an email appointment reminder and invoice through this site.
During our initial consultation, we will both assess if it is a good match to continue our work together, and if it is, we will schedule follow up sessions and dive in. If you would be better served by another therapist or coach, I will be happy to offer you referrals to colleagues who can support you with your intentions.

Couples therapy, couples coaching and uncoupling coaching are not billable services for any insurance plan. I can offer an invoice for reimbursement from your HSA or Flex Spending Account.
Investing in Your Relationship:
Receiving the support of a devoted, experienced and well trained couples therapist or coach requires an investment on your part. The biggest investment is your openness and willingness to grow beyond your current level of development as individuals and as a couple.
It also requires an energy exchange of a set fee for the time we share together.
