Couples who seek therapy with the Gottman Method often arrive in the first session with confused thoughts, hurt feelings, and dashed desires. And I often hear, "my spouse doesn’t hear what I'm truly saying. I'm exhausted from trying." If this remind you of your struggle, now is the time to add research based skills in your marriage. Your past either heals and opens possibilities of connection in love or keeps you in that past bringing shame and fear in your current daily life. I assist in redirecting old disaster patterns and give master relationship skills.
After 17 years of clinical counseling in private practice and a hospital, I welcome people who have never gone to a counselor and are uncertain about going. My style is to understand both of you and to see your relationship from both perspectives.
I want to hear your goals and develop a specific set of skills to target your desired outcome. I am passionate about equipping people with skills and growth for better communication. Then I'll prepare you with tools for feelings of safety, love, and respect in difficult interactions. Healing into new patterns with your spouse is possible; ask how to regain moments of joy.
Here are some frequently asked questions:
1. Where are you located?
A: North side of Cincinnati in the offices of Liberty Center.
2. What will happen at the first session(s)? A: We spend a session as a couple, and then in solo sessions discussing life, your marriage successes, and reasons for coming to marriage therapy.
3. What is expected of me? A: I ask that you are ready to be honest about what is happening in your marriage. I believe in real and raw discussions for the sake of gaining connection between you and your spouse.
4. What is the expected time to see results? A: Of course the progress has a lot to do with your effort outside of session and length of severity. I set goals into sets of 8-10 session for recognition of progress.
