Are you and your partner stuck in conflict? Do you or your partner resort to name calling or shutting down during conflict? When you aren't arguing, you may feel emotionally distant or disconnected, like you are leading separate lives.
Gottman Method Couples Therapy helps couples experiencing distress in their relationship through structured, scientifically-based interventions designed to teach skills to deepen the friendship of the couple, to manage conflict effectively, and to create shared meaning and purpose. These skills are proven to reduce the likelihood of infidelity, breakup, and divorce.
In addition to this well-tested method, I bring warmth, humor, acceptance, and compassion to the process, honoring that challenges are inherent to each relationship and that it takes courage and commitment to enter couples therapy. I look forward to helping you and your partner reconnect.
Gottman Method Couples Therapy uses the metaphor of building a house
to understand the principles of a healthy and fulfilled relationship.
Couples therapy is for when both individuals are motivated to work on their relationship. If one or both of you is not sure about the relationship and whether couples therapy can help, you may be a better fit for Discernment Counseling.
