Couples Therapy

The process begins with an initial assessment, consisting of a joint history-gathering session, after which partners are given extensive questionaires to complete at home. These are returned at individual sessions with each partner. The therapist then compiles this data, and at a fourth session, the couple is presented with an evaluation of the their strengths and deficits. Psycho-educational information is presented, to clarify what works and what doesn’t in relationship. The couples issues are addressed using new strategies to teach a more effective process.

Couples Marathon

This service is designed for couples in acute distress and/or who are geographically unable to do traditional couples therapy with a Gottman certified therapist. It usually begins with the same assessment used in weekly therapy. The marathon consists of 10 hours of therapy done over a two-day period. Issues are pursued in depth, using Gottman interventions to practice healthier forms of communication.
