Couples counseling is not the same as individual counseling.
In my practice I use the Gottman Method as a primary foundation for my couples work. I also use other methods as needed and appropriate. I believe that The Gottman Method is the seminol method for couples therapy. This method is based in more than 40 years of research on thousands of couples around the world. I have completed the Level 3 training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
In this method we believe in a full assessment of your relationship before starting therapy; like going to the doctor. Then we work together to design a plan that addresses your unique needs as a couple. Then we work together, me as the coach, teaching you to heal the relationship which is our actual client. The goal is for you to be able to make your relationship a place of joy, successful and resiliant. We believe in teaching you, and helping you to repair your relationship in the areas of: Friendship/intimacy; Conflict managment and Shared meaning. This method is designed to address anything from the constant repetative issues we all struggle with all the way to deep betrayls in a relationship.
Couples sessions are 90 minutes long. Some insurances cover couples counseling some does not; please check with your insurance.
