Expanded Sessions available for clients who would like more than 60 minutes at a time. Many clients find that meeting for 90 to 120 minutes to be very helpful to gain momentum and progress quickly early on and then reduce sessions to 60 minutes to maintain progress.


Because I offer extended online therapy hours, I often have same week appointment availability and see clients same day as needed when experiencing relationship issues to be able to deal with the hot issue sooner rather than later preventing additional relationship stress.


 I make every effort to fit therapy into your schedule and pride myself on being readily available as needed by keeping at least one same day appointment open in my daily schedule for my clients when they need to see me as quick as possible.


In addition, as an established client, I am available to you via text, email and phone as needed.

What is the difference between Relationship Therapy and Relationship Coaching?

The main difference between Relationship Therapy and Relationship Coaching is that therapists are trained and licensed to do more than coaches can do. Therapists must have at least a Masters Degree in Social Work, Marriage and Family Therapy (with 2 years post Masters Degree Experience and Advanced Licensure to practice independently) or a PhD in Psychology with licensure to practice independently. Coaches often attend a school for coaching and earn a certificate. Therapists do all that coaches do, but can also provide a therapeutic approach to any issues that a couple is having. A Relationship Coach and Relationship Therapist both assist a couple with going from good to great, but Only a Relationship Therapist can deal with significant issues in a relationship if needed too.

 Both Relationship Therapists and Relationship Coaches ask questions to help one or both partners in a relationship to improve something – for example, improving communication, personal growth or helping them respond to needs better. Improvement will be judged on metrics decided on by all involved. Relationship Therapy also offers strategies for people to communicate so they can resolve emotional issues or so that they can come to terms with something that is hard to talk about (e.g. a previous divorce, infidelity, illness or a death, etc.) or mental health issues that are preventing someone from being happy.   Essentially, therapy clients are looking to resolve, heal, deal with issues, set goals and get results to get to a better place; coaching clients are only looking to get results based on goals that are established to go from a good place to an even better place.

 Another way to think about this is to say that Relationship Therapy adds the ability to deal with unresolved issues from the past that are impacting your ability to be happy together, today. e.g. “You said you had difficulty trusting your partner because of how your parents treated you when you were younger. A therapist can help you resolve that so that it no longer impacts your current life and you will be able to move forward. Relationship Coaching is more about assessing and adapting your habits in the present so you can get results you want in the future – whether that’s fixing something in the near term (e.g. “We want to organize our time better so we can spend more quality time together) or working towards something big over the long term (e.g. “How do I keep my ongoing conflicts with my in-laws from really hurting our marriage?”).  But don’t forget, Relationship Therapists do all that Relationship Coaches offer too!

 So, how do you know if you need a Relationship Therapist or a Relationship Coach?

You need a Relationship Coach if you want to set goals as a couple, make a plan and achieve them with the guidance of someone who is trained as a relationship coach.

You need a Relationship Therapist if you are discontent, arguing more than what may be considered normal, have trust issues, experienced infidelity, have high stress level, are experiencing depression, anxiety and/or other mental health issues, have anger and resentment in your relationship and/or other issues. With a Relationship Therapist, you can address all the above and also set goals as a couple, make a plan and achieve the goals that you set together. In other words, Relationship Coaching and Relationship Therapy assists a couple with going from good to great, but Only Relationship Therapy can deal with significant issues in a relationship if needed too.

Do You Want a Healthy Relationship Guarantee?

Though no relationship comes with any guarantees, having a Couples Therapy Care Plan may be the closest thing you can have to a Healthy Relationship Guarantee. A Couples Therapy Care Plan should begin as soon as you decide to commit to one another. A Couples Therapy Care Plan is proactive and wise to better ensure that you establish healthy patterns and a style of communication with your partner that will promote closeness and relationship stability. Think about it, by doing this you develop a rapport with a therapist when your relationship is not under duress, the therapist shares needed skills specifically for you as a couple in 2-4 sessions for you to have the best relationship possible, you check back in with your couples therapist every 6 months to address anything that may have come up within your relationship as it matures (This should be no different than going to see your Primary Care Physician Two times a year-It is Preventative Care), then you have a therapist who knows where you began, knows your story and can jump right in with you at times when you would benefit Couples Therapy throughout your relationship. We don't wait to find a Primary Care Doctor until we need one, we have one who knows us already for the if and whens of illness. This makes it easier to make the call to get scheduled as soon as you encounter issues, preventing relationship stress and disconnection. (It avoids the who do we call and not only are we having issues in our relationship, now we have to tell someone we never met our entire story stress). Having a Couples Therapy Care Plan prevents the situation where the Couple waits to come to therapy until they are in a long term negative pattern that is harder to change and therapy would never become the last ditch effort to save their relationship. A Couples Therapy Care Plan helps you have the healthiest relationship possible.Type your paragraph here.
