Service Description

I am passionate about using the Gottman method for couples because I have seen it make a positive difference, both in practice and in my own marriage. This method includes increasing closeness and friendship, addressing conflict productively, and building a life of shared meaning. The Gottman institute has been studying relationships in the love lab for 30+ years, and through that has come up with a program to help clients stay together and become masters in their relationships. Along with treating relationship distress, my specialties in couples work include recovering after an affair, healing from the effects of addiction, trauma and other emotional problems, preparing your marriage for success. I am offering HIPPA compliant telementalhealth couples therapy during this highly stressful time for many couples. Surprisingly, it works quite well. You are able to receive therapy from the safety of your home during the pandemic. I encourage you to try it if your relationship is having difficulty. What to expect once you book a session: When you book a session I will send you a relationship checkup for each of you to fill out separately, this is an important step for assessing your relationship and will help to guild the therapy. This will cost $40 per couple, paid directly to the Gottman institute. I will need an email address for each person to have the invite sent. The first face to face session includes everyone in the couple, I will ask a serious of questions to get to know you as a couple and what brings you to therapy. Then next sessions is each person separately for 60 minutes individually. As a couples therapist I do not keep secrets, unless it is a safety concern. This individual session helps to assess how your history is impacting your current relationship. The third session is both people coming to session again, this is the final assessment stage. I will give you feedback based on your assessment and give you each a copy of the combined scores. We will work together to set goals for treatment. The sessions after the assessment sessions are unique to each couple based on the assessment.
