Discord with your partner can be extremely distressing. My hope is for each person to feel accepted, supported and heard. We will jointly identify the goals of couples counseling. Often times, these include your relationship goals or improving specific skills and ways of being with one another that might enhance the relationship. I have received training in the Gottman Method for Couples Counseling. Drs. John & Julie Gottman are renowned in the field of Couples Counseling.
Common areas of Couples Counseling:
What to expect in Couples Counseling:
During your first meeting, you will discuss your history as a couple and what brings you to couples counseling. I will provide you each with written questionnaires to complete before your second appointment. These questionnaires provide a chance for you to reflect on your relationship and for me to get to know you better. In the second week, I will meet with each of you individually in order to get a better sense of your individual history and well-being. In the third week, you will have an opportunity to provide additional background information and collaboratively set goals for couples counseling. Couples Counseling typically entails weekly one hour long sessions. The length of Couples Counseling varies according to the couples’ situation and goals.
