How We Treat
Gottman Method Couples Therapy
The method is based on the concept that a healthy partnership is much like a well-built house with sturdy walls and levels that keep it stable and intact.
The Gottman Method is a form of couples therapy developed by Drs. John Gottman and Julie Schwartz Gottman in the 1980s.
The Gottman Method is a research-supported, tool-based therapy. Interventions are designed to help couples strengthen their relationship in three primary areas: creation of shared meaning; friendship; and conflict management.
Some of the tools include managing conflict; turning towards (instead of away from) each other; positive perspectives; sharing fondness and admiration; building love maps; creating shared meaning; and working together to make life dreams come true.
