“There’s nothing more fulfilling in therapy than watching two people find each other again.”                                           ~ Dr. Julie Schwartz Gottman 

Gottman Couples Therapy

I completed all three core clinical trainings in the Gottman Couple’s Therapy Method and Treating Affairs and Trauma.  

The Gottman Relationship Checkup is administered to assess areas of opportunity for client couples to grow and to highlight strengths.

What is the Gottman Method?
Gottman Method Couples Therapy for healthy relationships.  “A research-based approach to strengthening your relationship.”   Combining the knowledge and wisdom of nearly forty years of studies and clinical practice, Gottman Method Couples Therapy helps couples break through barriers to achieve greater understanding, connection and intimacy in their relationships. Through research-based interventions and exercises, it is a structured, goal-oriented, scientifically-based therapy. Intervention strategies are based upon empirical data from Dr. Gottman’s study of more than 3,000 couples. This research shows what actually works to help couples achieve a long-term healthy relationship.

How was the Gottman Method discovered?

For nearly four decades Dr. John Gottman has conducted research on all facets of relationships, including parenting issues. At the Institute, in collaboration with Dr. Julie Schwartz Gottman, he developed an approach that not only supports and repairs troubled marriages and committed relationships, but strengthens happy ones. 

Treating Affairs

Dr. John Gottman unfolds the science behind trust and betrayal and provides the tools needed to create trust and commitment in love relationships. The Gottmans describe their impactful “Atone, Attune, and Attach” model for treating affairs. This model provides clinicians with an unbiased approach that compassionately serves both partners as they struggle to rebuild a collapsed marriage.

This means believing (and acting on the belief) that your relationship with this person is completely your lifelong journey, for better or for worse (meaning that if it gets worse you will both work to improve it). It implies cherishing your partner’s positive qualities and nurturing gratitude by comparing the partner favorably with real or imagined others, rather than trashing the partner by magnifying negative qualities, and nurturing resentment by comparing unfavorably with real or imagined others.
