we offer COUPLES COUNSELING
It can be tough to make that first call for couples counseling, but hearing and being heard are vital to our relationships and marriage and couples counseling often helps!
Gottman couples counseling techniques allow both partners to be provided with the right tools, approaches, and insights to decrease relationship frustrations and turn toward each other. Gottman Method Couples Therapy is a heavily researched intervention for couples that requires advanced training and technique to facilitate.
The Gottman Institute says it best! "The goals of Gottman Method Couples Therapy are to disarm conflicting verbal communication, increase intimacy, respect, and affection, remove barriers that create a feeling of stagnancy in conflicting situations, and create a heightened sense of empathy and understanding within the context of the relationship."
