My passion is helping couples and families develop rich and rewarding relationships. I am a National Certified Counselor and a Licensed Professional Counslor. To my knowledge, I am the only person in Southern Brazoria County with the unique combination of training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy (GMCT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). GMCT is based on over 40 years of research and helps couples learn and implement daily practices that will enrich their love and friendship for one another, helps them avoid the common communication traps that cause one another pain, and teaches them interventions (effective interpersonal skills) to help them repair damaging communications. I am also an Intensively Trained Dialectical Behavior Therapist and Skills Trainer. DBT is a research and skills-based therapy that was developed for individuals who experience painful emotions and often experience significant conflict in their relationships. I am comfortable working with people of any religious or philosophical background as well as those in opposite or same sex partnerships. My clients appreciate my approach of being nonjudgmental and kind while at the same time encouraging them to use effective skills and interventions to improve their lives and relationships. Whenever appropriate, we enjoy learning with laughter.
I have been married for 38 years and my husband and I have ourselves experienced even greater satisfaction in our marriage since we began implementing Gottman interventions. We have raised two children to be kind-hearted, responsible adults who, in their growing up years, provided us with some excellent in-the-trenches inspiration (a.k.a. "challenges") to learn effective parenting skills that allowed us to discourage unwanted behavior, encourage good behavior, and create life-long loving relationships. They, too, have satisyfing, healthy marriages.
Training in GMCT combined with DBT gives me unique ability to provide the support you need.To benefit from my special combination of training, please call Texas Family Solutions at (979) 297-4335 located at 109 Circle Way in downtown Lake Jackson and request me, Lucinda Johnstone, by name. I look forward to our work together.
