Therapy and Counseling for Adults

 

Dr. Vallery Coats specializes in therapy for adults and offers the following:

Traditional Weekly Couples Therapy

Not all couples are going through distress or infidelity, but they still need help with

  • Reconnecting as a couple
  • Imbalance of household duties
  • Communication
  • Pre-marital counseling
  • Adjusting to change
  • Fine tuning

If this sounds like what you need, and you have the time to meet weekly or every other week, Dr. Coats provides traditional couples therapy.

Couples therapy has helped many couples get back on track. It is a complex process that takes time; there are no quick fixes and it requires a commitment from both people. Dr. Coats is a skilled couples therapist who values your time and strives for a healthy outcome for both of you. Weekly appointments are preferred, but couples are expected to attend therapy at least twice a month for about 6 months. Sessions are 90 minutes each. This commitment will allow adequate time for a balanced perspective that addresses issues presented by both partners.  Dr. Coats sometimes asks to meet with each person separately on occasion, but she doesn’t take “sides” and she doesn’t keep secrets.

All couples sessions are 90 minutes, $225. Dr. Coats does not accept insurance.

Dr. Coats does not discriminate. She provides therapy for monogamous couples who are straight or gay, married or partnered.

If your needs are greater than this, or you feel like you are in distress as a couple, please consider attending the 3 Day Intensive for Couples in Distress.

Therapy for Couples in Distress

3 Day Intensive Weekend: Couples in Distress (Thursday-Saturday) designed for couples dealing with a crisis event or distress such as:

  • Cheating (an emotional or physical affair, sexting, hook ups, any of it)
  • Betrayal (secrets, lies, double life, hiding information)
  • Irresponsibility (under-employed, over-spending, poor focus on family)


This can be a devastating, confusing time. Most couples want to save their marriage after crisis events, but some couples are conflicted because their marriage had already started to fall apart or is stuck and unhealthy. This program will help you sort things out so you and your partner can begin to get clear on what to do for yourselves and your family. There is no judgment of either partner; we just want what is best for your partnership. Couples will then return to or be referred to ongoing couples therapy.

Our intensive weekend provides group therapy in a safe, structured setting for couples in distress. Licensed therapists will address individual situations as well as cover topics relevant to couples in distress such as childhood influences, responsibility to self and others, managing emotions, healthy decision-making, conflict communication, forgiveness, etc. Please note this intensive is not for clients who are suicidal, acutely mentally ill, actively addicted to drugs or alcohol, or have been arrested for violent crimes.

This Intensive Weekend provides:

  • 3 days of group therapy with licensed staff experienced with conflict
  • Lodging included, Hilton Garden,  about 4 miles from the program
    • Breakfast included at the hotel, lunch included at the program
    • Transportation each way via the Hilton shuttle
  • A solid clinical referral to therapists after you complete the program

If the unfaithful spouse or partner is the one who needs help first, please consider attending the 3 Day Intensive for the Unfaithful Spouse.

Fees to be announced. Program not covered by insurance.

Dr. Coats does not discriminate. This program is for monogamous couples who are straight or gay, married or partnered.
