Frequently Asked Questions
What is your approach?
I help people learn to master the messiness of relationships, together or separately. I help people make sense out of what's working in their lives, what's not + what they can do about it. I am a relationship therapist - we talk about how to heal, nurture, strengthen, and exit relationships.
Who do you work with?
I work with adult individuals + couples throughout all stages of life. I have a sweet spot for helping couples and individuals explore trust and make space for deeper intimacy in relationships.
Where do sessions take place?
Sessions generally take place in my private therapy office (located on the edge of Irvine + Laguna Hills off the 5/405 split at the Lake Forest exit.) though occasional phone or secure video conferencing sessions are available upon request.
Non-Hosted intensives or weekend retreats are located at various hotels in Orange County, CA (additional fees may be associated).
How long are the sessions?
As we enter into our work together we will outline session length + frequency specific to our work together. This may be adjusted as our work goes on + needs change.
Individual + Couples sessions are generally 50-minutes in length.
I suggest weekly sessions until goals are met or longer intensives, as needed.
90-minute sessions, every other week are for those who are willing to dive deep, and get work done.
What are your session fees?
50-minute session, $200 - $250.
90-minute (couples) session*, $300 - $350.
*90 minute couples sessions are generally recommended every other week
Add on services such as phone consults over 10-minutes and lengthier sessions are pro-rated off the 50-minute session fee.
When is payment due + What are payment options?
The full fee for your session is collected at or before the time of service via cash, credit card, debit card or check. We can also securely record a debit or credit card so you will not have to take time for payment during your session. I do not bill for services, or carry account balances.
I accept cash, check, debit, VISA, MasterCard, Discover, American Express. I can also accept HSA cards for in-office therapy sessions.
Do you accept insurance?
No. I do not accept insurance. All services are private pay (meaning you are responsible for full payment at the time of service.)
Weekly therapy isn't a fit - what other ways are there to work with you?
Many of services are customizable — email me to discuss further.
Do you ever sell any products, recorded video series, or exercises that you've created?
I do. Head over to my Epic Products page + have a look.
Giving you access to interviews I've conducted with other relationship experts, worksheets I've created + tools to strengthen relationships has proven to be invaluable. These are especially great as supplemental to the work we do in therapy or if you're not able to come in + meet with me in-person.
