I have completed Level 1, 2, and 3 in Gottman Method Couples Therapy. The Gottman Method of Couple’s Therapy is based on Dr. John Gottman’s research that began in the 1970s and continues to this day. The research has focused on what makes relationships succeed or fail. From this research, Drs. John and Julie Gottman have created a method of therapy that emphasizes as nuts-and-bolts approach to improving clients’ relationships
Gottman Method Couples Therapy integrates research-based interventions based on the Sound Relationship House Theory. To clarify, the Sound Relationship House includes the following aspects.
First, how well do you know your partner’s inner world?
Secondly, how much affection and respect occurs within the relationship?
Third, what do the small moments of everyday life look like?
Lastly, understanding that relationship conflict is natural and has functional, positive aspects.
For this reason, I work with couples to build a strong and lasting relationship with each other based on open communication, a sense of understanding, trust, and love. I believe that wellness stems from a relational standpoint and hope to help strengthen your relational bonds with your partner, as well as with others in your life.
Above all, making the decision to begin couples counseling doesn’t mean that you’ve failed. In contrast, it means that you are striving to help your relationship grow to its full potential.
Since couples come in many forms, I hope you feel comfortable starting services no matter what stage your relationship is currently at.
For example, partners in dating relationship have come in to explore the future of their relationship.
On the other hand, I have worked with couples who are engaged and wanting to do premarital counseling.
Additionally, newlywed couples have attended therapy because of their dedication to keep their relationship strong.
In contrast, married couples have come into counseling to help deal with life transitions, such as a new baby.
Lastly, I have worked with couples who are in fulfilling relationships and are striving for their best relationship.
