Not all couples are going through distress or infidelity, but they still need help with
- Reconnecting as a couple
- Imbalance of household duties
- 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.
