Personal Statement:
Do you need a COUPLES SPECIALIST? I'm glad you are taking your first step toward healing your marriage or significant relationship. Other couples have selected me as their therapist because of my: COUPLES TRAINING: I have received specialized relationship training at the Master's and Doctoral levels, hold a license as a Marriage and Family Therapist, and am authorized by the state of California to perform Psychotherapy. COUPLES TOOLS: I have developed an extensive set of practical tools and exercises for you and your partner to integrate into your relationship. These exercises focus on communication, anger management, love languages, trust building, strengths discovery, intimacy building, and forgiveness. We don't just talk about issues, but create new experiences together. EVIDENCED-BASED PRACTICES: I use scientifically validated psychotherapy techniques which have been developed based on 35 years of research with thousands of couples. BIBLICALLY-BASED FOUNDATION: I am affiliated with the Christian Counseling Center-San Jose. My therapeutic approach is consistent with and rooted in Biblical principles but I would never force any beliefs upon you. LIFE EXPERIENCE: Having been married for 29 years, I have learned from the ups and downs of real life, not just reading about it. PASSION: A failing relationship breaks my heart. That's why I am dedicated to helping couples. I love what I do, care deeply about my clients, and am completely committed to supporting you on your healing journey.

The goal of this process is to restore trust and build a shared vision for the relationship. Read more at WWW.HARRYMOTRO.COM
Insurance
,Although I do not accept direct payment from insurance companies, I assist you in filing with your insurance company by providing a “super-bill” which includes the diagnosis and treatment codes that most insurance companies require. (Most insurance companies will reimburse for therapy involving two people if one person has been given a diagnosis). You will then submit the super-bill to your insurance company for reimbursement.
