What Clients Say

Testimonials from our standing customers

The advice I received truly brought me to a state of awareness and acceptance regarding a very serious decision I needed to make. I’m now in a much brighter state because of this advice. I wish previous therapy practitioners had the wherewithal to help me understand this; I might have been so much happier, much sooner.

JLC

I appreciate that he’s down to earth and culturally relatable to our issues. He’s a very good listener and very patient while meticulously engaging the issue and providing promising solutions.

Terry C. 

We had a great first experience. We appreciate Mr. Sturdivant’s responsiveness to our needs while providing practical solutions and tools to improve ourselves holistically. Mr. Sturdivant arrived on time and was very attentive to our needs. We will continue to use Mr. Sturdivant in the future.

About The Marriage & Family Clinic

Traditional therapeutic models fall under the auspices of insurance companies who dictate the kind of therapy you receive and the amount of time per session. Not only has the Marriage Family Clinic abandoned traditional models of therapy for more practical life applications, we have also increased session times to two hours (140%) in order to accommodate the most challenging life situations our clients may face. This allows us to address the intricacies of complex life situations that require more time and attention which cannot be reconciled in a traditional 50 minute session. Whether online, in-person at our office, Tobacco Trail**, your address, or favorite restaurant/coffee shop, we hold sessions in different environments to give our clients variety in surroundings that are most comfortable, efficacious, and which stimulate different thought processes.

For Consultation & Pricing Call 919-998-8199...

Unlike the traditional psychotherapeutic models which only spend one clinical hour (50 minutes) in session with you, M&FC clients receive a full two hours consultation (120 minutes) per session, effectively doubling the amount of time spent with each client. We do in one week what takes other offices two weeks to accomplish.

Dedicated Client Care Adapted To Your Needs

Your well-being is my ultimate concern. Since 2011, I have provided clients a wide range of human development services to suit their needs. Whether you’re an individual, a couple or a family looking for help, my sessions are designed to strengthen your confidence, and assist you in the healing process. All sessions are two-hours long, moving away from the clinical 50 minute time frame and getting into the deep issues that impact relationship communications.
