I very much enjoy working with couples, and believe in helping couples to not just coexist, but to thrive! I believe in good communication, love "languages", never taking a partner for granted, and bringing God and Faith into the marriage if that may be possible.

Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in Jacksonville, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it. For some families, it may be difficult to sustain a commitment to therapy without proper insurance coverage. If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around Jacksonville may have flexibility or sliding scales. Low cost counseling and affordable therapy are also sometimes offered by listed city and university level clinics, check with your local Jacksonville public health department.
