Clarity and confidence

when the future of your marriage is uncertain

If you or your spouse are considering divorce but are not completely sure it is the best path, Discernment Counseling may be right for you. Discernment Counseling is designed to help you and your spouse gain clarity and confidence about the future of your marriage based on a deeper understanding of your relationship.  This is a short-term process, usually 1-5 sessions, designed to help you determine the best path forward whether that is to maintain the status quo, move toward getting apart well or investing in an all-out effort to restore your marriage to health. 


The first step is a brief phone call with you and your spouse separately to ensure this approach is right for you. If we decide it is a good fit, we will set up the first session which is 2 hours.  At the first session, I will meet with you both together for 35-40 minutes and then I will meet with each of you individually for 30-35 minutes with a brief conjoint summary after each individual session.  I also offer this service as an intensive experience with all of the sessions condensed into a 2- or 3-day time period. 

I am a Certified Discernment Counselor and am currently engaged in a 12-month residency program with the founder of the Discernment Counseling model, Dr. Bill Doherty.


The rate for this service is $200 per hour. Discernment Counseling services may be covered, at least in part, by insurance.  I am in network with Aetna, Allied Health, Cigna, Evernorth, Humana, Medical Mutual, Meritain Health, Ohio Connect, Ohio Healthy and Optima.
