Guided by evidence-based therapeutic methods
We provide an environment for open dialogue and tailor our approach to each couple’s unique relationship dynamic and situation.
We integrate elements of various evidence-based modalities to enrich the couples counseling process:
The Gottman Method
Developed by Drs. John and Julie Gottman over the last four decades, this method focuses on improving communication and empowering partners to approach conflict in a constructive manner.
The Gottman approach helps couples develop practical skills and strategies to improve their relationship through empathy, understanding, and positive interactions.
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)
This research-backed method emphasizes deepening emotional connections for a more fulfilling relationship. By identifying negative interaction patterns that undermine intimacy, the EFT process guides couples in discovering ways to promote mutual understanding and closeness.
Integrative Behavioral Couple Therapy
Integrating principles from various therapeutic modalities, IBCT focuses on relationship satisfaction by addressing thoughts and behaviors contributing to distress.
This approach helps couples navigate dysfunctional interaction cycles, develop acceptance strategies, and pursue positive change with the aim of building a more resilient relationship.
