A myriad of issues and dynamics brought you to this page. You're doing your research and due diligence, for which I applaud you. Choosing a therapist whom you will feel comfortable sharing your innermost thoughts and troubles with can be an intimidating and daunting task. In effort to help you determine if I might be the right fit, I've included as much information about myself and my practice on this website as possible. I really strive to offer transparency from the time we first meet here (How do you do!) and encourage you to read an entry or two from my blog to get a feel for my style. I understand the specific situation that led you to this page is unique, which is why I offer three couple's therapy options.
Oceanside Private Couple's Retreat
I created the Oceanside Private Couple's Retreat to be the perfect blend of romantic getaway and intensive couple's therapy. This three day, two night exclusive experience is offered to only one couple at a time. You'll be staying at the upscale Wyndham Grand Jupiter, dining at City Place and Harbourside Place, rejuvinating at Venetian Spa, and improving your relationship through a mixture of romantic experiences outside my office and deep clinical work in my office. If your schedule is hectic or not conducive to weekly couple's therapy sessions, this retreat was crafted with you in mind.
If the thought of ripping the bandaid off week after week makes you cringe and you're looking for a more immediate and drastic change, I highly recommend marathon therapy. Marathon therapy begins as any clinical journey should, with a thorough assessment of the relationship. The major difference of marathon therapy is the timeframe in which it is completed. Marathon sessions typically last for three to six hours daily for several consecutive days. The actual amount of time required varies by couple. Once the marathon sessions are completed, follow up sessions are scheduled as needed to support and reinforce changes made.
Weekly Couple's Therapy
If you're looking for the more traditional approach to increasing the health and happiness of your relationship, weekly couple's therapy is the way to go. I recommend my couples attend at least one sixty minute session per week. Extended sessions are also available.
To cut down on the time and cost of therapy as well as to ensure a thorough assessment of the strengths and growth areas, I use The Gottman Relationship Check Up with my couples.
Regardless of the specific therapeutic service you're seeking, consistency is key to achieving the most optimal results. Not only is attending session regularly important, but so too is implementing the concepts and strategies discussed in therapy. You hold the reigns of your growth, so invest the time and effort necessary to genuinely make the changes you seek. You deserve it. Truly.
I understand circumstances are sometimes such that traveling to a local therapist office is unrealistic for a number of reasons. To serve those of you falling into this category, I currently offer online sessions via HIPAA compliant VSee for those seeking therapy in Florida and abroad. VSee itself is free for clients and has been a very reliable means of conducting therapy online in my experience.
$150 per 60-minute session
Although I do not accept insurance, I am happy to provide documentation for clients seeking reimbursement for out of network benefits.
If you fail to attend your scheduled therapy appointment and have not provided at least 48 hours notice in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.
