I very much appreciate the conversation I had with Illene. She listened to my relationship problems, diagnosed the key issues, and suggested how to begin working on resolving them immediately. Her solution-based therapy method is perfect for me, and I am thankful she takes time to figure out how to work with each couple in an unique way that is best for them. Definitely recommend!

After my first counseling session, I already feel like I'm moving in the right direction. I feel that I'm going to be learning a lot about myself and how I interact with others.

We received our first counseling session with Ilene and we are very happy with her past education and experience and feel like she will be able to mentor my husband and I through our issues. We are optimistic to go back and receive her guidance.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My fees are $200/60 minute session.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The first session I introduce myself and give a brief orientation to the counseling process. I have the clients introduce themselves and explain their situation. Then instead of the clients filling out lots of paperwork we together create a clinical diagram of their families and the relationships within them and any relevant issues. I find my clients enjoy this and come away with a deeper understanding of their families, relationships and the context of their lives.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Beyond the Masters degrees that I have earned, I have extensive training in relationship therapies that are based on research of the past 40 years. They are very effective and help people understand themselves within the context of their relationships and families.
