Couples Therapy

“we are wounded in relationship and we are healed in relationship”

Harville Hendrix

Couples therapy can help you gain insight into your relationships, learn skills to handle specific problems, and improve your overall relationship satisfaction.

 

Some of the issues that can be addressed in the couples therapy include:

  • Frequent arguments, gridlocked conflicts

  • Communication issues and emotional distance

  • Problems leading to separation and divorce

  • Issues related to transitions such as getting married, becoming parents, moving to a new country

  • Specific problems such as infidelity, sexuality or finance.

“Some people leave a marriage literally, by divorcing. Others do so by leading parallel lives together.” 

John Gottman

The Gottman Method

 

I use the Gottman Method Couples Therapy which was developed based on Dr. John Gottman's          research on close relationships that began in the 1970s and continues to this day. 

 

This evidence-based method provides specific tools designed to help couples with

  • addressing and managing conflicts, 

  • strengthening friendship and intimacy,

  • building or recreating shared meaning and goals.

 

We will also work on preventing relapse to create lasting positive change.

Therapeutic framework:

Gottman Method Couples Therapy starts with a comprehensive assessment process. The assessment includes a conjoint session (part 1), followed by individual sessions with each partner and completing several questionnaires (part 2). In the final session of the assessment, I will present feedback on your relationship based on the prior evaluation, including mutually agreed-upon goals and a treatment plan (part 3). 

 

We will decide on the frequency and length of the sessions based on the your needs.

 

For a limited period, I am offering the Gottman Method Couples Therapy for a reduced fee.
