Professional statement

Peter Jones is a licensed couples therapist with 30 years experience in investigating and understanding impasses in communication and finding ways through and around them.

He received his MA from Columbia University and his Ed.D from the University of Bristol, both degrees focusing on adult communication and learning. He spent 15 years teaching college and graduate students how to identify communicational impasses and design, implement and test solutions for them.

Beginning in 2015, Peter expanded his understanding of interaction by familiarizing himself with the neuroscience, attachment and psychological literatures on communication with intimate partners. He has been in continuous training since then with the Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy (PACT) institute. He trained for five years the Hartford Family Institute's body-based (gestalt) psychotherapy program, while earning his licensure in marriage & family therapy.


Message to clients

I see my clients as intelligent, resourceful and probably frustrated by the status quo.

I will work with you two by observing how you two interact and what gets in your way.

Often you are doing what has always made sense to you and yet it doesn't work as well as you'd like. Do you really have time to dive into the research and therapy literatures? Most couples prefer just to make progress quickly, and thus benefit from observation, input, feedback, practice & feedback with an expert.

I'll observe, suggest alternatives, help you use them and troubleshoot any sticking points. I'll make the rationale clear so that you can be creative on your own.

The goal of this work is to function securely with your partner, getting through difficulties fast so that you can move on to more enjoyable things.

Therapist's note

I charge 150/hour; thus $225 for a 90 minute session. Most couples need no more than 15 sessions; couples therapy should be as intensive as possible over a short period of time. It's up to you how fast you go, but three months is the norm.
