With over 20 years experience working with individuals, couples, and families, I will make sure you get the help you're seeking.
I have specialized training in these areas:
Therapy Session Fee:
$150.00 per 45 minute session.
If you need more time than the standard 45 minute session, then extra time will be billed at the same rate. Out-of-session correspondence will also be billed at my standard rate.
Payment will be collected prior to your session (card, check, or cash).
After you have scheduled an appointment to meet with me, my office assistant will email you intake paperwork that needs to be completed online and submitted before your first appointment. Completing this beforehand will allow more time for you to speak with me in session about the issues that bring you to counseling.
INSURANCE: I am not a provider for any insurance carriers. I do not bill insurance companies. It is your responsibility to pay for your session fees prior to service. If you would like to submit a statement of service to your insurance for potential reimbursement of your costs, please inform the office assistant and they will provide one.
THIRD PARTY PAYMENT (INCLUDING LDS BISHOPS): We can submit invoices to LDS bishops for reimbursement. If your bishop will be paying for your counseling sessions, please bring his mailing address and phone number with you to your initial appointment.
WHAT IS EFT?
This opportunity allows couples two days of intensive couple therapy with Geoff Steurer, licensed marriage and family therapist and marriage recovery expert.
Marriage intensives offer:
Here’s what we can accomplish during the marriage intensive
During your intensive, I’ll work privately with you in a highly focused way for two days. It will be intensive marriage counseling for just the two of you. No other couples or therapists will be involved.
Although we can’t solve everything in two days, we can usually:
Very likely, you’ll leave the intensives with your walls down, feeling softer and closer to each other than you have in a long time.
Schedule:Two consecutive days 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
During your intensive, we’ll work together each day in a highly focused way. Here is the basic schedule and cost outline.
Unlike weekly sessions, we can break when we need to. For intensives, I’m on call for you during the times listed. Each couple is unique in the pace they want to work. It’s important for you to carve out space during the two days to concentrate on your marriage. The schedule during the day will flex based on how things are going.
First Day: Typically, I'll do one hour in the morning with both partners. After that, we'll break into individual sessions (each spouse for one hour) By this time, everyone is ready for lunch. After an hour or so for lunch, we'll come back in the afternoon for more sessions with short breaks as we need them.
Second Day: We’ll begin the second day with couples counseling and take breaks as needed. If additional individual meetings are necessary, we’ll adjust accordingly. There will be a one-hour lunch. If additional time is needed after the second day, we can discuss and make arrangements, if time allows.

Individuals who struggle to stop viewing pornography often feel powerless and hopeless over their efforts to quit.
Sometimes individuals have problematic sexual behaviors that go beyond pornography, including affairs, prostitutes/escorts, strip clubs, voyeurism, and masturbation.
Getting help for problematic sexual behavior takes courage. I have specialized training in assisting those who struggle with pornography and sexually problematic behaviors. I can help you stop the self-defeating patterns that threaten your emotional, spiritual, physical, and relational health.
Consider the following questions:
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, let's meet and talk about your situation to plan the best way to help you move toward a healthier you.
It is surprising how difficult life becomes when you've been betrayed by someone who committed to be faithful to you.
There are so many unexpected hardships. Regular things feel so much more difficult (like parenting, friendships, socializing, work, sleeping, eating, and others). Even though his behavior isn't your fault, the fallout from his actions impact your mind, feelings, body, spirit, and relationships.
You long to stop the pain, so you focus on the source of that pain... your partner's addiction. You might tell yourself, "If he just gets over his pornography or sexual addiction, I'll be fine."
It's true that he does need to heal from his addictive behaviors. It's also true that you've been deeply wounded by his choices. You need your own healing.
In the stress and confusion, it's normal to forget your own need to heal and to be heard.
My training is in marriage and family therapy, so I have experience working with most issues impacting individuals, couples, and families.
I've worked in many different settings over the past 20 years, so I can quickly assess the best kind of help for your situation.
If there is another approach or therapist who can help you more effectively, I will make sure to refer you.
My objective is to get you the right kind of help, even if it's not me.
