Gottman Sound House Method

The Gottman Method is an evidenced-based treatment approach that can help you to improve your communication, resolve difficult issues and move towards new levels of trust and intimacy. Sessions begin with an assessment process and online questionnaire designed to help couples strengthen their relationships in three primary areas: friendship, conflict management, and creation of shared meaning. 

Couples learn to replace negative conflict patterns with positive interactions and to repair past hurts. Interventions are designed to increase closeness and intimacy are used to improve friendship, deepen emotional connection, and create changes which enhances the couples shared goals.

I offer a complementary consultation to see how couple's counseling might help.  The purpose of the consultation is so we can discuss your current situation, and to make sure I can help you.  Whether you need just a few sessions or several over a longer period of time, the benefits can provide you real, lasting changes in the life that you want to live.


Pre-Marital Relationship Assessment

I also offer the PREPARE/ENRICH Relationship Assessment for couples, that can help you and your partner determine your strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities for growth in your relationship. As one of the most widely used premarital education assessments, Prepare/Enrich has helped many couples get on the path to something better.

The Prepare/Enrich customized survey is most widely used for premarital therapy services, but can also help with marriage counseling, and dating couples considering engagement. Whether you are considering marriage, or already married, it can help you and your partner establish goals, develop a balanced relationship, and explore growth areas. Each partner completes the inventory independently by answering approximately two hundred questions.
