Trish Stanley is the founder and CEO of The Center for Couples Therapy, San Diego's premier couples therapy practice integrating the best in contemporary couples therapy approaches which are then finely honed to meet the specific needs of our clients. On our team we have three Certified Gottman Therapists as well as several clinicians with Level III training. Among the approaches we consider when customizing a therapy plan for our clients are Gottman Method Couples Therapy, Ellyn Bader's Developmental Model (all our therapist complete this training),and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. With such a rich palette of understandings and tools, and therapists passionate about couples therapy and lifelong learning, we focus closely on what works with each struggling couple or individual with relationship issues. We remain nimble enough to bring in resources from video, literature and the arts, and special learnings from other approaches to provide optimal support for our clients. In addition to providing therapy with a roster of eight deeply experienced and compassionate couples therapists and two individually-focused therapists we offer Couples Intensive Retreats. We provide consultation and other resources to clinicians and other professions and groups. We present The Art & Science of Love, A Gottman Couples Weekend Workshop, six times a year..
