Individual Psychotherapy

One-on-One psychotherapy to help you overcome personal conflicts


Assessing problems and conflicts together in one-on-one therapy

At Bickford Covington, we understand the range of human experience that may impact over-all performance in life in any, many or all our roles. We realize that all things start with the self; when you are in a psychologically healthy place all aspects of your life do better. We provide psychotherapy for individuals, relationships, and family, during which you will learn the psychology of living life, rather than worrying about or avoiding life.

You will learn to lean-in to life in a way that is congruent with you, and increasingly healthy functioning. You will learn about who you are, how to live an authentic life, and how to see others for their true selves, which enables clarity in decision making and discernment.

You will learn how your psychological health impacts your physical health, and what to do about it. You will learn how to control anxiety, lift your mood, make healthy decisions for overall health and well-being, improve your relationships, clean-up your life, raise healthy and wise children who learn who they are through your knowledgeable parenting. And then you will learn how to apply what you have learned and how to maintain and continue in your growth and development for a lifetime.


Monday to Thursday – 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM

You may already be familiar with The Four Horsemen (criticism, defensiveness, contempt, and stonewalling) but now that our context has shifted on a global scale, it’s worth taking a closer look at each and how they might show up at home.

Though all of the four horsemen are damaging, Contempt is perhaps the most destructive. John Gottman describes contempt as “sulfuric acid for love.” Yikes.

So what is contempt? At its core, contempt is holding on to the negative belief that your partner is inferior or “less than.” It may manifest as sarcasm, hostile remarks, eye-rolling, mockery or mimicking, or sneering directed at your partner.

“Oh you’re so smart, huh?”
“You’re embarrassing yourself and me.”
“You just don’t know any better.”
“You don’t ‘feel like’ making love tonight? Big surprise!”

It conveys disgust. Ouch.

It’s a mean one, but it can be reversed. The antidote to contempt is building a culture of appreciation.

Cure nastiness with fondness and admiration. Appreciate the ways your partner is different, and that they have their own subjective, individual experience of things. Regard them as an equal.
