Call to make an appointment
Couples seeking therapy often say they want to learn tools and gain skills to help them communicate effectively. They want concrete help and the Gottman methods will provide that. Both clients will leave the very first session knowing more than when they arrived about how to repair their difficulties.
With decades of scientifically proven techniques, the Gottmans have helped countless couples begin to heal and work towards being “Masters” in their relationships. You will learn what not to do and just as importantly what TO DO. We will assess your strengths and identify areas in which you need assistance as we start out work together.
I have more than 22 years of experience as a therapist and use my Gottman training against a backdrop of Attachment, Trauma, and Alcoholic/Addict family systems Theories. I am also trained in Psychodynamic Theory which helps me assess any unhelpful family patterns you might be carrying into the here and now as well as the defenses you use to protect yourselves. I will teach you scientifically vetted, effective ways to reduce these patterns and replace them with healthier ways of communicating with one another.
My style is warm and interactive using empathy, humor, story examples and homework. You will have learned experiences of one another right in the sessions which will help you transform your relationship and thrive as a couple.
