You’ll understand each other more, remember why you fell in love, and bring your marriage back to happiness and peace.
Telehealth for individuals and couples who are burned out from the pandemic. We are in this together and I can help you to feel less anxious, and more resilient and connected. I also help successful women and couples. Women, everyone believes you have it all together, but inside you know differently. Stress hits at the worst moments.

I help women just like you rediscover their strength and intuition and live bigger, more powerful lives!

You may have often heard some people say that therapy is for only those with a mental illness or are "crazy". I'm Mark G. Koch and have been a licensed Marriage Family Therapist since 1996, and I can honestly tell you that those type of statements are a myth. Everyone has a view of how the world works and we use the tools we have to deal with our issues, but occasionally there comes a time when a problem arises that we have no answer to. At this point we become "stuck".

Often, these problems cause difficulties in our relationships. My hope is to provide a safe place to be heard and understood. I seek to create a connection with you built through non-judgmental acceptance no matter what your situation.

There are points in life where you may ask yourself if the path you're on is leading you where you need to be going. You may be asking yourself questions like: "Is this the best I can expect from my marriage ?" "Is this what I'm supposed to be doing with my life?" "Is the work I'm doing the work I was born to be doing?" I will work with you both to get answers to these questions and to more fully accept the answers you receive.

I am a bicultural Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.
Becoming a parent is a unique and transformative experience. From the moment of conception through the journey of parenting there is an array of unknown rewards, challenges and experiences. At times parents have no idea how they will feel or react to these challenges and realize that they need help and support through their own journey as parents. Research proves the way we were parented, the environment in which we developed, and the situations around us influence the way we feel and behave as parents.

What type of Pleasant Hill mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Pleasant Hill?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
