Gottman Couples Therapy
BE HEARD. FIND CONNECTION.
“I don’t feel understood.“
Many things get in the way of a fulfilling, deep relationship. Sometimes, life events or personal choices result in loud fights and heightened conflict. Other times, closeness can disappear slowly and quietly. Life gets busy, and you wake up one day wondering how you grew so far apart.
Whether serious trust was lost or you’re just missing the zest and connection you used to share, these challenges can drastically impact your life.
“I want to actually enjoy life with my partner.”

The Gottman Method is a successful therapeutic approach developed by Drs. John and Julie Gottman, after four decades of research with over 3,000 couples.

We’ll walk through exercises and activities that help you understand each other and equip you with tools to deepen your relationship throughout your everyday life.
Why I Choose Gottman.
I love that it isn’t just someone’s personal opinion on what ruins or fixes relationships, but rather cold, hard data. Over 40 years of research backs this method.
