I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist specializing in Gottman Method Couples Therapy. I am an Advanced Clinical Trainer with the Gottman Institute and have been successfully using the method for 20 years now!
I complete a full initial assessment of your strengths as well as targeting the areas that need improvement. With this assessment we have the information we need to set a course for treatment. I use practical exercises and directives in session, as well as weekly assignments that I sometimes give clients to work on between sessions.
I believe that the clients should have a clear sense of the direction of their therapy. I keep a close eye on where you are in terms of goal accomplishment, so that therapy has a course and there is an endpoint in mind from the very beginning.
I help couples learn ways to improve their relationships by using specific tools to deepen friendship and intimacy in your relationship. You will also learn nuts and bolts strategies to productively manage conflicts. You will be given methods to manage solvable problems and open up dialogue about gridlocked issues.
My goal is for you to appreciate your relationships strengths and to grow together toward a brighter future. My rates are:
$250 for the first assessment session, then $200 for an hour of therapy
Longer sessions are available and are often helpful in couples therapy:
PTSD, affair recovery, couples who want to deepen their connection and increase intimacy
