Special Discount rate using Gottman Method!


Gottman method couples therapy is based on over 40 years of research by Drs. John

and Julie Gottman of the Gottman Institute in Seattle, Washington. Dr. John Gottman is

a world-renowned relationship researcher whose comprehensive longitudinal research

into what makes committed relationships work is unparalleled by any other researcher

in the world. Based on their systematic groundbreaking observations of thousands of

couples, Drs. John and Julie Gottman developed a simple, practical, and highly effective

model for healthy relationships called the Sound Relationship House, which is both easy

to teach and implement in everyone’s lives.










Gottman’s Sound Relationship House

Gottman Method couples therapy takes these four plus decades of research, the model,

and converts it into a structured, transparent, effective method of couples therapy that

has been shown to improve relationships in multiple research studies. While there are

other couples therapy methods that are also based on relationship research and

outcome studies, we believe none of them have the scientific backing, the structured

and effective skill-building, and the practical tools and techniques that make Gottman

Method couples therapy easy to understand and integrate into any committed intimate



When you request Gottman Method couples therapy, we will first get to know both of

you and your relationship history using the Gottman scientific protocol for evaluating the

strengths and challenges in a relationship. This includes a clinical interview where we

trace the trajectory of your relationship history, a conflict sample where we understand

what your communication skills and challenges are, a thorough online questionnaire

that both partners complete from the Gottman Institute, and two individual meetings with

each partner. Your counselor will then meet with both of you to share the relationship

assessment based on the Sound Relationship House model and collaboratively arrive at

a treatment plan that outlines the specific goals and outcomes that you wish to achieve.

Following this treatment planning session, the counselor meets with the couple for

approximately 6-12 sessions where they teach the couple specific Gottman conflict

management, friendship, and shared meaning skills.

Partners seek counseling for a variety of reasons such as Communication issues,

Conflict management, Parenting or collaborating as a team, Intimacy problems,

Infidelity, Infertility, Recurring issues, Finances, Kids, Unsolvable conflict, Life

goals/dreams, Past trauma, Considering separation/divorce, spiritual or personal

identity crisis, transitions and losses.
