A couples counseling session involves both you and your partner attending sessions. Both you and your partner will discuss specific problems you would like to solve and the therapist will collaborate with you to set goals together. During your sessions, your therapist will act as an impartial third party working to ensure the two of you meet your goals successfully.
During and individual session you and your therapist will meet one-on-one to determine your specific goals you want to achieve during your sessions. After you begin individual therapy, you may invite any family or significant others to attend sessions with you if both you and your therapist feel it would be beneficial in meeting your goals.
Because problems and issues rarely happen in isolation, it is often most beneficial to work with the family as a whole to gain a complete picture of the circumstance or crisis being faced. A family session is available for you and as many family members as you would like to invite. We encourage all household members, regardless of age, to attend family sessions. Additionally, extended family are encouraged to attend sessions as well. During a family session we will all work together to determine what immediate goals we would like to achieve during our time together and focus on addressing those specific issues.
Group therapy is beneficial for clients who would like additional support by surrounding themselves with individuals individuals experiencing similar problems or symptoms similar to themselves. Each group meets one night per week and the program lasts six weeks. Group sessions are based on the number of interested participants and programs are rotated. Please check with the office to determine what group sessions are currently available and the fees associated with joining the group.
The Marriage and Family Therapy Center is expanding its online therapy hours. Online therapy appointments are now offered on two weekday evenings and on Sunday afternoons. Space for these appointments are limited.
If you would like to consider this option as a supplement to your regular therapy appointments, or if you feel online therapy might be a good alternative for you due to frequent schedule conflicts or demands at home that make it difficult to attend an in-office session, please contact us to discuss setting up an online appointment.
What Is Online Therapy?
Online therapy – also known as “telehealth,” “teletherapy,” “e-counseling,” “e-therapy” – has been steadily growing in popularity in recent years. Not only is it convenient, it’s a huge time saver as there’s no need to drive to and from weekly therapy appointments. With a HIPAA compliant video meeting program – all you need is an Internet connection to have a virtual “face to face” therapy session, all while sitting in the comfort of your home, or somewhere else that’s confidential and private.

Fees and Insurance
Payment is due at the conclusion of each session. We are considered an Out-Of-Network Provider with all insurance companies (we do not accept any type of insurance) and will be happy to provide a receipt for you to submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. All session charges are paid directly by you and can be charged to a major credit card, health savings account or flex spending account.
Many clients prefer this method in order to protect their confidentiality. Most insurance companies require a clinical diagnosis and may request copies of psychotherapy records in order to be eligible for reimbursement. Since we do not use your insurance, we are not required to share this type of information with your insurance provider and all information regarding your sessions is kept private and confidential.
It is important that you check with your insurance company to determine your benefits and coverage prior to scheduling your initial consultation.
