FAQs about Couples Therapy

What is your couples therapy style?

I am the advocate of the couples' relationship. I do not side with either partner. Instead, I encourage both clients to have an active collaboration with me, both serving as experts of their relationship with differing points of view.  


In other words, the relationship of the couple is my true client.

What happens in the first session?

I will ask each of you about your goals in the relationship, and will ask about each of your backgrounds as well as the history of your relationship. This may take one-two sessions.

Can we have longer sessions?

Yes. Depending on the nature and urgency of the situation of you and your partner, I do offer double sessions.  Please ask me about this if you are interested.

How long does each therapy session take?

My sessions are usually 45-50 minutes.

How do I know if my partner and I are ready for couples therapy?

You are ready when you both agree of you agree your relationship is important enough to work on it with a professional.
