Loving Couple

Are you accepting new clients?

I have limited availability for couples seeking Discernment Counseling (a short-term intervention for couples where one or both partners are considering divorce and unsure if they want to reconcile). 


I regret that I am not currently accepting new clients for couples therapy: I have a waiting list.

What else should I know, to help me see if it's a good fit?

• I do not see clients in-person; I am an all-virtual practice. 


• I do not accept insurance; I am self-pay only. 

• I do not schedule sessions in the evenings or early mornings. My first session begins at 11 am, and my last session begins at 4 pm. Based on the urgent nature of couples on the brink of divorce, I reserve a limited number of spots on Saturdays for Discernment Counseling clients. 

• I do not work with individuals; I just work with couples.  

• Please see other FAQs for additional information to determine if we are a good fit.  

Looks good. I'm ready to get started. What's the next step?

For Discernment Counseling 

You may call me at 864-319-3360 to schedule a free, 20-minute phone consultation to see if working together is a good fit. For Discernment Counseling, each partner should reach out to me separately for you each to have separate phone consultations. 

For Couples Therapy

Please note that I am not accepting new couples at this time. However, if, after reviewing my website, you feel that I am the best fit for you----and you want to be placed on my waiting list rather than begin with someone else sooner----you may call me at 864-319-3360 to schedule a free, 20-minute phone consultation. Only one of you needs to reach out to schedule your phone consultation; however, you will both want to be present for the scheduled phone consultation (we can do a conference call for the consultation, if necessary).  


If, after the phone consultation, we all agree that it's a good fit, I'll place you on my waiting list. If, for whatever reason, it's not a good fit, I'll do my best to point you in the right direction. 

What should we do while we wait for couples therapy? I get it. You're in a tough spot, and you don't want to wait for help without any support. You may find it helpful to read Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love (by Dr. Sue Johnson) to help prepare you for your couples therapy experience. ​​
