Gottman Method

The Gottman Method was developed by Dr. John Gottman and Dr. Julie Schwartz Gottman in the 1980’s to help couples strengthen their relationships in three primary areas: friendship, conflict management, and creation of shared meaning. Gottman-trained therapists help couples replace negative conflict patterns with positive interactions and repair past hurts. Interventions used include helping couples deepen emotional connection and increase closeness and intimacy, enhancing the couple's shared goals.

In order to ensure you get the change you’re looking for, I use the Gottman Relationship Checkup tool. It’s an online assessment that consists of 480 questions about your relationship. This assessment scores your strengths and challenges as a couple so that we can get right to work.\n
