Dr. Weibel has been married for twelve years. Upon reading the previous sentence, his wife informed him that it has been thirteen, and feels longer. As in the previous sentence, within couples work, a sense of humor is key. Dr. Weibel combines a common-sensical and playful style, twenty years of doing psychotherapy, and a solid grasp of evidence-based treatments for couples. Dr. Weibel will offer suggestions and homework for both partners. He attempts to treat the relationship, the in-betweenness, and look for compromise, rather than blame only one partner.
Dr. Weibel began doing psychotherapy in 2001 and treating couples in 2011. He has studied approaches that work well with couples, including completing levels I and II in the Gottman method. He has studied attachment theory and its role in romantic relationships. Dr. Weibel has studied psychodynamic therapy, which allows him to observe how each client’s early relational patterns may influence the current romantic relationship. Dr. Weibel’s wrote a book about perspective taking and compassion and helps each partner see the other’s position, and hopefully move toward compromise and a shared narrative.
Rates for Couples Counseling
First session 90-minutes: $250
Subsequent sessions 50-minutes: $200
Dr. Weibel does not accept insurance for couples counseling for several reasons, including:
· Many insurance companies will not pay for couples counseling.
· When an insurance company does pay for couples counseling, they are actually paying for family therapy using the billing code 90847, which indicates that one member of the family has a mental disorder, which necessitates medically necessary treatment. When a therapist bills this code, the undiagnosed partner is there to support the treatment of the diagnosed partner’s mental disorder.
· The treatment plan and progress notes would need to indicate how the disordered partner is the focus of treatment.
· Dr. Weibel believes he is treating the relationship, not one partner.
If you are unable to afford couples therapy, we can discuss a sliding scale based on family income and assets.
