Specializing in Couples Counseling using the Gottman Method

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently asked questions about therapy and counseling

How long does therapy last?

The amount of sessions for couples counseling or individual therapy varies by client. My goal is to get you where you want to be as quickly as possible. Once you no longer need my services, I terminate regular sessions and schedule maintenance sessions as needed. I believe caring for yourself and your relationship is an ongoing process and you will know when it needs attention. 

What can I expect during our sessions?

We will work together to gain insight into what brought you to therapy and explore how these issues are impacting your life. We will develop a treatment plan that addresses these problems and work collaboratively to create measurable change.

What if I can not afford your fees?

The Downtown Therapist offers a limited number of discounted sessions per week. For more information, please call (720) 340-2506. 

What if I do not like my therapist?

If you do not like your therapist, do not give up on therapy, try someone different. We all have unique personalities and prefer different methods and techniques and it is important for you to find someone who is a good fit for you and your situation.
