Dr. Klein maintains an evidence-based approach to couples’ therapy. Her approach focuses on five basic principles which have been identified as essential aspects of all effective couples’ treatments:
1. Changing the views of the relationship
2. Modifying dysfunctional behavior
3. Decreasing emotional avoidance
4. Improving communication
5. Promoting strengths
The application of these principles to couples’ therapy provides the appropriate parameters within which couples can make informed and productive decisions about their futures.
Be aware that most health care plans and insurance plans do not cover marital or couples therapy. While you can submit claims to your health plan, Dr. Klein requires full payment for these sessions at the time of service.
