I treat adult individuals (30 years & up), couples, and families. My specialties for couples therapy include: Marital, Premarital, Separation, Divorce, Communication Issues, Intimacy Issues, Life Transitions, and more. Please inquire to see if I specialize in the areas you are coming in for. I am currently only doing in-person sessions for new clients at my office in Signal Hill (Long Beach area).
I do not accept insurance for couples therapy. If you have a PPO where you can choose your own provider, I can provide you with the appropriate documentation so that you can get reimbursed through your insurance company. Several of my clients use their HSA (Health Spending Account) or FSA (Flexible Spending Account) to reduce the cost of therapy. I accept all major credit cards and FSA/HSA debit cards. I also accept payments via Zelle.
COMMON REASONS FOR THERAPY
Roles in the relationship
Sometimes the roles in a relationship can be unequally distributed, leading to built-up tension and unhappiness.
In couples counseling, we work to understand how and why both parties view the different roles, and how it affects the relationship overall.
Beliefs and values
Oftentimes, beliefs and values stem from childhood and past experiences, and when they don't align within the relationship, miscommunication can happen.
Together with a therapist, couples can work towards gaining a clear perspective into each others' beliefs and values.
