What is The Gottman Method of Couples Therapy…
Cultivating, maintaining and sustaining a relationship takes work. Building a happy, healthy and loving relationship requires dedication, commitment, understanding and a willingness.
Dr. John Gottman is a pioneer in relationships. He and his wife, Dr. Julie Gottman have been studying and working with couples for nearly 40 years.
They have researched all types of couples: gay, straight, co-habitating, married, engaged, couples struggling with infidelity or addiction, and couples who may be on the verge of separation or divorce.
They have discovered what helps couples thrive in relationships and which couples are doomed for separation or divorce.
They have conducted research on thousands of couples in their Seattle, Washington “Love Lab”. Through his longitudinal studies, they are able to predict with an average of over 90% accuracy if a couple will divorce or not.
The Gottman’s created an approach that uses research based skills to change the way couples interact with one another. The Gottman Method focuses on managing conflict, turning towards one another, creating shared meaning, enhancing emotional and physical intimacy, deepening friendship and keeping a positive perspective.
The Gottman Institute, provides training for couples therapists across the globe. They also provide resources for couples including live workshops, products and services such as books, videos and private retreats.
The majority of the work I do is with couples, because I love love and love helping couples love, love again!
I am passionate about helping couples learn ways to connect, communicate and create the desired relationship that they want and deserve.
My work is deeply rewarding, not only do I get to help other couples, but my work helps me be a better person, spouse and partner.
