Individual or Couple Counseling

Sessions can be once a week or more often.  As counseling progresses, sessions can taper off to every two weeks to once a month.  After completion of counseling, many couples come in for a six-month, or yearly check-up.

Couple Counseling:

Counseling for couples can be scheduled on a weekly basis or more often as needed.  Couple counseling typically is more intensive and of shorter duration than individual counseling.  After initial counseling is complete, many couples chose to return for a refresher session at six months or a year.

Individual Counseling:

Individual counseling is available, and helpful for dealing with relationship issues, dating or other problems in living.

Coaching for Effective Co-Parenting:

When parents divorce each other, they do not divorce their children. Coaching for effective co-parenting helps parents to establish a workable parenting relationship after divorce.
