Individual Therapy Sessions

Psychotherapy (also known as therapy or counseling) is a process for self-discovery, healing and growth in a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental environment. People come to therapy for a variety of reasons. Sometimes people want to make big changes, manage their symptoms, explore past issues, heal from traumatic experiences, improve their relationships, and/or simply have a place to check-in and stay attuned with one’s self.


In psychotherapy, therapists apply evidence based practices to help people develop healthier and more effective ways to sustain well-being. Psychotherapy is a collaborative treatment based on the relationship between an individual and the therapist. Grounded in dialogue, therapy provides a supportive environment that allows you to talk openly with someone who’s objective, warm, compassionate, and nonjudgmental. You and your therapist will work together to build self-awareness, a stronger sense of emotional well-being, increase your capacity for resilience in the face of stress, improve your sleep and overall health, improve relationships, and improve functioning at work and/or school.

I offer first-time visitors a complimentary 15-minute individual or couples therapy phone consultation. This allows individuals to make sure I am the right fit for their preferred therapy style. Please contact me via email or phone with any questions. The standard fee per session for individual therapy ranges from $160 to $200. For couples counseling, the standard fee ranges from $200-$290 (depending on pre-determined 60 or 90 minute sessions). However, it is important that the fee is not prohibitive. I can offer a temporary alternative fee for both individual therapy and couples counseling based on your income, which can be discussed confidentially and determined in my sole discretion.

Couples Counseling

There are many benefits that can come from couples counseling. Couples counseling, (also known as couples therapy), is a type of psychotherapy. This type of counseling helps couples of all types to explore, recognize, and resolve conflicts in an effort to improve their relationships and interactions. Through counseling, you can be provided with the tools to make mindful and intentional decisions about your relationship. When working with a therapist, you and your partner are able to explore the your relationship as a whole as well as your individual interactions. You are provided a safe space to explore the patterns of both your individual and couple behavior, as well as find ways to be more mindful of your actions, motivations, and decisions. By talking through our problems, we better understand ourselves and, with guidance, are often able to make changes that improve our daily lives and relationships.

A couples therapist is a professional trained to listen with empathy and expertise regarding your relationship and individualized challenges. Your therapist can help you and your partner cope with any negative thoughts and feelings and/or provide objective guidance towards your personal and relationship growth.

Some couples seek couples counseling to strengthen their partnership and gain a better understanding of each other. Couples counseling can also help couples who plan to get married. I work with couples who identify as LGBTQI+. I also work with couples who identify as polyamorous.

Premarital counseling can help couples achieve a deeper understanding of each other and manage differences before marriage. In other cases, couples seek couples counseling to improve a troubled relationship. You can use couples counseling to help with many specific issues, including:

  • Communication problems

  • Sexual difficulties

  • Conflicts about child rearing or blended families

  • Substance abuse

  • Anger, conflict, and/or withdrawing

  • Infidelity

  • Attachment issues (ways of bonding) from trauma/family of origin concerns

Group Process Therapy

A process groups typically consists of 5 to 10 individuals who meet face to face to share their struggles and concerns with 1 to 2 trained group therapists. The power of process groups lies in the unique opportunity to receive multiple perspectives, support, encouragement and feedback from other individuals in safe and confidential environment.

Human beings are inherently group oriented. Since birth, we are involved in small groups – our families – and develop to live, work, and play in various other groups. The formation of our personalities is predicted upon our experiences with the different groups in which we interact, and the opportunities for modification and change of our personalities are very much affected by the groups in which we are involved. As my favorite psychologist Harry Stack Sullivan stated “it takes people to make people sick, and it takes people to make people well again.”

Group therapy by its very format, offers unique opportunities to experience and work on issues of intimacy and individuation. It is usually impossible for individuals to view themselves as existing alone and affecting no one when in a group therapy situation over any significant period of time.

You can utilize group therapy to help with many specific issues, including:

  • You want to work on how you relate to others (i.e. setting boundaries without feeling guilty)

  • Improve your sense of self and self-esteem

  • Share your experience with depression, anxiety, trauma, and so forth to people who will offer support

  • Share your family of origin concerns to foster growth and healing

  • Increase your motivation to change as other members often help provide support and create a sense of accountability

  • Build more coping skills


Dr. Stemati offers a women’s process group for ages 22 and up, and the next section is set to begin (TBD) in person Monday evenings. Each section is 10 weeks long. This service can be more cost effective for some individuals and/or can help supplement your individual therapy.

I do not currently accept insurance. I am happy to prepare a monthly or weekly “superbill” statement for you to submit to your insurance provider in the event your insurance will accept this.

I request that you notify me at least 24-hours in advance if you are not able to attend a scheduled therapy session. I charge the full session fee if you fail to give me adequate notice.


I currently accept credit cards, checks, cash, or some forms of e-pay.
