Marriage/Relationship Counseling

One of our therapists utilizes the Gottman Inventory for her marital and pre-marital counseling. Couples take an online inventory that covers a wide variety of relationship areas. When completed, the therapist gets back 65-80 pages of information about the strengths and areas that need work in the relationship.

She uses a variety of Gottman materials during the couple counseling sessions to teach the couple new skills in relating to one another. The majority of couples find it a rewarding and helpful experience as they work to build a deeper bond.  Homework assignments are given as needed. After the couple has reached a greater understanding and awareness of their issues, they are seen less and less often. Then a 6 month appointment is usually made to insure that they are continuing to use the skills they have  learned.

This program was developed at the Gottman Institute in Seattle, Washington, where John and Julie Gottman have spent the last 35+ years videotaping and studying what it takes to make great relationships.
