We are proud to announce that we have completed Level 1 Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy!

When a relationship is in trouble, it’s normal to feel overwhelmed and discouraged. Couples may find themeselves stuck in the same troublesome patterns over and over again, without quite knowing how they got there. Frustrated and hurt, it can be tempting to give up, either going through the heartache of ending the marriage or resigning themselves to unhappiness together.
It turns out, however, there are a special set of skills to help intimate relationships thrive. Most people don’t know these skills exist, and that they work! By becoming more aware of behaviors that hurt, and substituting action strategies of love, marriages can recover and grow strong.
Gaining insight into the importance of friendship, health-ful conflict resolution and shared meaning and purpose for couples is foundational in the Gottman approach. Learning expanded techniques for helping couples rediscover connection, intimacy and passion has been very exciting and useful. We are grateful for the opportunity to share this information with couples, and enjoy seeing the growth that takes place.
