Services & Rates

Existential Theory

This theory views anxiety as a normal human condition. By focusing on the present moment through mindful practice, clients can change their thoughts and emotions into a manageable size, and focus on their desired outcomes. 

Gottman Method Couple Therapy

Over 30 years of research, the Gottman method has created a blueprint of stable marriage based on analyzing “relationship masters and disasters.”  This research-based method provides achievable goals and guidelines for couples. 

Emotionally Focused Therapy

EFT is the most empirically validated therapy for couples. EFT utilizes emotions to break destructive cycles of interaction and help couples to develop new responses and different perspectives in their situations. EFT has over 70% of effectiveness with little relapse rate and has been also proved in treating depressed and traumatized individuals. 

I use integrative approach to meet your needs.

*I offer relationship coaching service as well. The rates for coaching sessions are the same as shown here.

I do not bill insurance but can provide you with a superbill. If you have out-of-network coverage, you may be reimbursed. Please check with your insurance company. Typically, couples therapy is not covered by insurance.

The payment is due at the time of service. Your credit card will be charged automatically unless another payment method is arranged. Cancellations require at least 24 hours advance notice to avoid the full charge.
