Do I really need therapy?
Therapy is beneficial for everyone not just for those who are on the verge of breaking up or those who have experienced trauma. My resources will give you the tools you need to cope with the daily stresses of life and become the healthiest you that you can be.
What will it cost?
Marriage counseling is often not covered by the American healthcare system insurances. I have set my prices to increase access for people who often can not afford such services. Families who qualify for state benefits will be priced on a sliding scale at my discretion. I do not accept insurance. Being paneled with insurance companies can drastically limit the services I can provide. I prefer to design your relationship counseling around your needs rather than your insurance company’s needs. Therapy is an investment in yourself, your relationships and your future. All new clients will be encouraged to invest in themselves and the health of their relationships, the stakes are high.
How do I pay?
I collect payment at the end of each session. I accept debit/credit and multiple payment apps such as paypal and Venmo.
Who are these services directed towards?
My services are available to all people. However, my expertise is in African American relationships. Because I am so passionate about relationship therapy, my practice is focused on couples, families, and individuals who would like to address interpersonal relationship issues only.
How much time should I commit?
I ask that for general couples counseling you commit to one hour a week for at least four months. After that we can discuss your progress and assess if weekly appointments are still helping or if moving to biweekly would work. As time goes by, the intention is to lengthen the time between appointments and eventually you would just come in for periodic tune-ups
Premarital counseling is usually done over a three- to six-month period. You can come in once a week or every other week until all eight – ten sessions are complete.
Divorce counseling varies a great deal, but I do request that you commit to weekly appointments for the first month and then at least biweekly appointments after that. Over time we will then cut down to monthly meetings and then check-in appointments every few months.
Need to Cancel?
I ask that if you are not going to be able to attend a session that you cancel 48 hours ahead of time. I understand, life happens and sometimes you will need to take a break for a week. For last minute cancellations I like to be reasonable so, the first time you have a late cancellation there will simply be a $45 fee. In the future, however, if you cancel with less than 48 hours, you will be charged your full session fee. Last minute or continual cancellations can be indicative of your commitment level to the counseling process.
