Having Marital or Relationship Problems?
Research shows that many couples come to counseling 6 years too late! Don’t be in that group. Get the help you need NOW. I am a Certified Gottman Therapist that has been trained extensively in helping couples like you create the kind of relationship you want to have. Each marriage is different and has different components with different struggles. Each relationship needs to be seen as a unique blend of two different people. What works for some couples, doesn’t work for all couples. But The Gottman Method has the research that every couple needs to know…. what you need to be doing and what every couple needs to stop doing. My job is to help you be the best partner you can be for your spouse. I will help you both identify what your needs are that are not being met in the marriage, communicate that to one another respectfully and then try to meet eachother’s needs. I believe that each person in a marriage needs to ask themselves one question, “What is best for my marriage?” If you are asking yourself that question daily, and making the choice to do what is best, the marriage just keeps getting better and better.
GOTTMAN METHOD COUPLES THERAPY
When couples enter the therapy office, they sting with pain and despair. They look to the clinician to referee chronic conflicts, fix their partners, and rebuild burned bridges. Now, based on Dr. John Gottman’s 35 years of compelling research with over 3,000 couples, there’s a practical and highly effective approach to guiding these couples across the chasm that divides them.
Nuts and Bolts
First three sessions are information gathering
1st session- Exploration of current problem, history of the relationship and packet of questionnaires.
2nd session- a 50 min individual session with each partner
3rd session- Feedback session of strengths and areas that need work and goal setting
Will include exclusive Gottman Method Interventions to increase emotional connectedness, increase communication and understanding and decrease negative interactions.
- All sessions are 80 minute sessions- one hour and twenty minutes long. (Insurance companies do not cover 80 min sessions, so 50 min sessions will be used for individuals that have insurance)
- After completion of therapy, check-in sessions are recommended once every 3 months for 1 year.
(While I have taken training in the Gottman Method of couples therapy and have become a Certified Gottman Therapist, I want you to know that I (nor my agency, CASI) am completely independent in providing you with clinical services and I alone am fully responsible for those services. The Gottman Institute or its agents have no responsibility for the services you receive.)
