“we are wounded in relationship and we are healed in relationship”
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.”
The Gottman Method
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.
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.
