Frequently Asked Questions
What will others think?
You can’t control what others think. You gotta let that one go. This has gotta be for you and your relationship.
What’s the difference between talking to you, my best friend, or family?
True, talking to a friend over a cup of Starbucks is far cheaper and less threatening. But, I’ve gone through years of training. Y’all are gonna learn new approaches to situations, new skills, and different perspectives. I’ll listen without judgment or expectations. And I keep your private business confidential. So,if some really dark content has to be explored, it’s done in the safety of my office.

How does it work? What do sessions look like?
Check out the Relationship Counseling page for full details. Before we do anything, we’re gonna get you and your partner comfy and feeling like my office (virtual or in person) is a safe space to explore feelings. After that, I’ve found that every session has a different vibe. Your sessions are tailored to you and your relationship. You might need to process by talking, then move to an expressive activity, and back to processing. You’re the boss. You just have to be willing to show up, be honest about feelings, and open to sharing experiences.
How long will it take?
The honest truth is that depends on many factors. Your willingness to show up, be honest, and commitment to change all come together to determine how y’all move through the therapeutic process.
I want to get the most out of my time in counseling.
You have to want this. There will be times, when y’all really begin to work, that its tempting to say, “…to hell with this,” and bolt. Don’t, this is actually a good sign that progress is being made. Y’all are gonna have to feel it to heal it. And, yes, that is not always fun. But, I passionately believe that relationship counseling is worth it!
