  • What do you charge?
    Individual therapy sessions are $160 a 50 minute session. In marriage counseling I'll often ask the couple to meet for 2 hours. In this case there is a slight discount and the rate is $320 for a 1 hour and 50 minute couples session.
  • Why do you ask couples to schedule 2 hours?
    I often ask couples to schedule 2 hours for several reasons. The first is that I find it difficult to create any progress in the 50 minutes a single session allows. However, I have found that adding the extra hour is very helpful in accomplishing the progress that is needed to have hope that the therapy will succeed. The other reason I ask for two hours is that I often need to meet with the couple individually. It's helpful to think through relationship stress without your partner sitting right there and giving you "the look".
  • Do you take insurance?
    I no longer take insurance. Once upon a time I did but insurance companies would not pay for marriage counseling. I was also required to give a diagnosis severe enough to justify the insurance company paying for the sessions. Many of my clients were unconfortable with being diagnosed as anxious or depressed and would choose to pay out of pocket.
  • Do you have evening or weekend hours?
    I work most evenings. Weekend meetings are irregular and typically scheduled when an established client's work travel schedule makes weekday meetings impossible.
  • Where are you located?
    My office is located in downtown Houston at 2000 Crawford. It's conveniently located near I-45, I-59, and 288.
