Hi, my name is Kendra Capalbo and I offer counseling to busy, successful couples who need assistance in making their relationship work. I provide this at a concierge-level standard of service.
You are probably visiting my website because something in your relationship is not working quite right. It may or may not be obvious to others, most likely it’s not. Others may view your relationship as idyllic. But something feels broken, and you are ready to invest in fixing it.
I assist couples through 90-minute virtual sessions aimed at understanding what went wrong and then outlining plans on how to fix it.
My strategy for achieving success with my clients is simple:
1. I have extensive training in couples therapy and work exclusively with couples. Many clinicians lack specialized training and as a result, may cause more harm than good.
2. My approach is quite direct, and my clients tell me they appreciate that. I know you are both busy, so I don’t “sugarcoat” the issues you are facing. I help you deal with these issues head-on.
3. I have expertise in counseling related to infidelity, intimacy, neurodiversity and many other types of challenges you may be facing as a couple. I have seen it all, and make NO judgments.
4. I carry a smaller caseload than most therapists, which allows me to offer the flexibility and accessibility you expect, deserve and need to suit your lifestyle.
Together, we will explore and address relationship dynamics, communication patterns, and past emotional injuries to foster a healthier and more fulfilling partnership. This work requires courage, but the rewards are profound.
My persona isn’t one that is typical in the field of therapy. I have a grounded nature and sharp wit. I will infuse sessions with lightness but make the therapy experience deeply relatable. I try to make clients equate their time with me to a heart-to-heart conversation with a dear friend — a friend who’s good at weaving truth with tact, and urging introspection without dousing the spirit.
Please visit the rest of my website here to learn more about my practice and if working together may be a good fit.
Make an investment now, and for the following reasons:
1. Your relationship is the nucleus of your life. When you invest in the overall health of your primary relationship, it has a positive ripple effect on all other areas of your life. Similarly, when that relationship is in turmoil, it often negatively impacts the other areas of your life.
2. If nothing changes, nothing changes. If there are currently issues in your relationship, how much worse will those issues become as time goes on? Where might your relationship be in a year if the necessary work is not done now?
3. The longevity of your relationship is priceless. We are quick to splurge on our wedding day, but the real investment needs to be in creating a relationship that will stand the test of time. How much are those wedding photos worth if the relationship fails?

The entire focus of my practice is working with couples. It is my passion and as such, I have sought out extensive training specifically focused on couples therapy and continue to do so. I carry a smaller caseload and offer the couples I work with more availability, accessibility, and flexibility than is typical with most therapy practices. As a result, the investment is $750 per 90-minute session. Please note that I do not accept insurance.

As Seen In
“While my goal is to make couples therapy as easy as possible, it can be difficult, especially when you’re exhausted and don’t know if you can do it anymore. I challenge the attitudes and actions of my clients in ways other therapists will not, and my clients find that appealing and respond well to it.
Additionally, I work only with clients who I think I can help, and this leads to the high rate of my success. Our initial, no-obligation consultation is a two-way interview so we will all know if moving forward together is wise. Feel free to reach out to me – I am here to assist you in putting things back together again.”
Putting It All Back Together
I was ready to move out and split all assets with my wife. My children asked through my wife to consider going to counseling. I eventually relented and began to research therapists and techniques. I became convinced that if I was going to go through the time and expense of counseling it needed to be a therapist the specifically dealt with couples and used the Gottman technique. Eventually narrowed it down to two, Kendra and Dr. X (not named to be fair). Dr. X had plush office, tight booking schedule, fairly narrow regimentation and appeared to be very successful at what he does. Kendra’s office was sparse and small, a reasonable flexible schedule and indicated flexibility within reason. Kendra said she was glad I was “interviewing” therapists recognizing the need to be open and comfortable. She also did not charge for the initial visit. After back and forth discussion with my wife we decided on Kendra. She worked with us for a couple of months getting to the roots of our problems and help us to be able to communicate with each other. The result is we have not been this happy together in over twenty years. Still a work in progress but certainly heading in the right direction. Bottom line is I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kendra if you are seeking to repair a broken marriage. Does this mean she went easy on me? No, she was fair and unbiased. She picked up on underlying issues and allowed us to work them out.
In short, I can’t recommend Kendra enough and she’s improved my marriage and myself in more ways than I ever thought possible. Kendra is incredibly professional, compassionate, and intuitive. I’ve been seeing her with my husband for over a year now, and we want to keep Kendra as a part of our life as long as possible. We’d been together for about 9 years (married for 5) when we decided to seek some support. Personally, we were seeking better ways to communicate with each other, and didn’t understand how sometimes (despite our best intentions) we ended up missing the mark (offending each other, going to bed angry or confused). We’ve learned the tools to reframe how we think about communication and our relationship, and also so much more. Kendra is a strong couples therapist, not only for her incredible knowledge and experience in the subject, but also her ability to mold the sessions depending on what needs attention. We’ve worked through various crises together (personal, professional, and existential), and more mundane disagreements about chores. Big and small, Kendra is truly talented at working any issues we’ve had. Couples therapy is really hard. It’s hard (for me at least) to admit and ask for help. Sometimes, I feel emotionally drained after a session. But I know the support and therapy Kendra has provided has made my life and my relationship better. Every session, I feel like I become a better person and that is truly priceless. We consistently say it’s the best thing we’ve ever done.
I have been seeing Kendra for quite some time now… what I love most about Kendra is that she is “real”… she tells you like it is and she gives you things to work on and it’s up to us to do the work… I have seen many therapists in my past and she is by far the best one I’ve ever came across… Kendra thank you for making ME see the light at the end of the tunnel again… couldn’t have done it without your guidance!❤️
Kendra is hands down the best therapist that I’ve ever had (okay I’ve only had three, but she was the best – far and away). My partner and I worked through some communication issues with her and our time with her was truly a joy. She helped us learn to communicate better, repair damage after a fight, and made sure that we were keeping our “love tanks” full. I highly recommend Kendra as a couples therapist.
Kendra was prompt to get back to me as soon as I reached out inquiring about couple’s therapy. She is upfront with her pricing and methods. She is so helpful, knowledgeable and a great person to work with. I highly recommend Kendra to anyone considering couples therapy!
Kendra has helped us tremendously. She pointed out where we weren’t communicating well, giving us tips along the way. We slowly made improvements. After a few months, we went from many tears and lots of frustration, to laughter and finding the relationship we had from the years early on in our relationship. I highly recommend Kendra as a couples therapist. She is wonderful, down to earth, intelligent and very talented.
