We provide psychotherapy for individuals, couples and families. Initial consultations are typically 75 minutes and sessions range from 45-90 minutes. Sessions for sport psychology by Dr. Steven may be individually tailored to your needs.

As a husband and wife psychology team, when appropriate we may work in tandem. Many people find this option facilitates increased communication between couples and families.

We do not accept any insurance payments, as we made the decision not to be under contract to any managed care insurance health plans. We won’t allow third parties to dictate the terms of our therapeutic relationship with you. We do provide monthly statements for you to submit directly to your insurance company for reimbursement.
