    Strengthen or Redefine your Relationship

    Whether you are looking to enhance an already positive connection, prepare for the next stage of your relationship, break difficult cycles, or work through stuck places, therapy can be a powerful tool for strengthening or redefining your relationship.

    My work with couples is primarily based in the The Gottman Method, and informed by The PACT Institute, and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).

    Gottman Couples Therapy is an approach steeped in decades of research involving real life couples, which means that the interventions and techniques are evidence based and highly effective. The result: increased relationship success, higher levels of relationship satisfaction and intimacy, and fewer instances of regressing to previously unhelpful behavior and/or dynamics.

    I have completed Levels I, II, and III of The Gottman Institute’s therapist training program.  

    What will Couples Therapy look like?

    The first three sessions are typically a chance for me to really understand your relationship.

    I will ask you to complete an online relationship assessment (a one-time fee of $39) and I will meet with each of you one-on-one to learn more about your individual histories.  Finally, we will dedicate a session to reviewing the assessment, developing an understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of your relationship, and generally understanding where the therapy and relationship are heading.

    Often couples come to therapy because they are in crisis – I get that. If that is the case for you, we may take a different approach, but know, the better I understand your relationship the more effective our work together will be.

    My default session length is 50 minutes, however, in Couples Therapy, I do find that longer sessions (typically 75 minutes) allow us to dig deeper and see positive change more quickly.  If this interests you, please let me know.  Rates for longer sessions are pro-rated based on my fee for a 50 minute couples session.
