My husband and I enjoyed our first session with Dr. Morris. We both were comfortable, and Dr. Morris showed great interest in the concerns we expressed. He gave homework assignments which we both found to be very helpful. My husband and I are working toward improving our marriage, and I believe we will be GREAT with the help of Dr. Morris. We are so looking forward to our next session with him.

I don't even know how to say how wonderful an experience I had with Stephen Morris. Talking to him was the BEST hour of my day and has given me the most exciting sense of hope for my relationship. He is extremely professional and easy to talk to... never judging and very skilled in working on helping couples to make improvements. I attended solo for the first visit and am very excited to have my partner join next time. I'm already feeling like we are headed in the right direction! If you are remotely considering talking to someone about relationship issues, PLEASE talk to him. It really can be life-changing!

As someone who has been struggling in my marriage for a while. I have only had one session and feel like I have someone on my side. I feel as though Dr. Morris is the right person to guide me through this time. I really enjoyed my session and felt like there was such a weight lifted off of my shoulders. I’m hopeful for our future sessions and the potential for progress.

FAQs

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

    Various discounts are available including monthly installments, sliding scale, and other discounts as well. Contact office manager for details.

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

    The first session allows for an overview of what the client's expectations are and allows the client(s) to get to know the therapist and therapist's style.
