Individual Therapy Sessions

Allow us to help you seek resolution to unresolved issues, move beyond a sense of defectiveness, respond rather than react and learn to love yourself and others.

Sessions are conducted via ZOOM and/or in-person, per CDC guidelines. Kristy and/or Jerry are licensed at the highest clinical levels in their states.

Our Focus

Our focus is on helping clients develop true self-esteem, set and enforce healthy boundaries, and practice self-care and awareness-in-action.

We consider ourselves fellow travelers with you on the up and down journey of relationships. We walk the walk; we’ve both been married, divorced, and remarried to other people, cultivating happiness after some rough times. We know what it’s like to feel the exaltation of first love, the heartbreaks and defeat that accompany divorce and the energy it takes to start again. We know what it is like to have children watching you the whole time.

We’ve learned what relational skills we needed to develop, and we practice them — mostly successfully — with our beloveds every day, week, month and year.

We want to share them with you.

Individual sessions run from $200-$300 an hour.

We are out of network for insurance companies but you may be reimbursed, in part, directly by them for session expenses, depending on your plan.
