The Gottman Approach
Drs. John and Julie Gottman are well renowned relationship experts with a background in psychological research and therapy. Over the past 40 years they have been studying couples and developing a research based program to improve relationships. I am a level 2 Gottman therapist and I have seen great results using this approach.
The Gottmans have several videos as they have been guests in several Tv shows (e.g. Anderson Cooper, New Day, etc). A favorite video is when Dr. J Gottman sharing two SECRETS on how to make relationships work. One is for a woman and another for a man. Watch it here!

The Gottman Relationship Checkup
The Gottmans have created an online assessment that is valid and reliable. I am so excited to be able to share with you this wonderful assessment for couples!
As an approved member I can provide my clients with the Gottman assessment. After completing this assessment you should have a better understanding of the strengths and challenges of your relationship. Also, as your therapist I will be able to tailor my approach to your specific issues in a more efficient manner.
I strongly encourage you to invest in this assessment. Once you tell me that you are interested, I will send you a link for you and your partner to complete the online assessment. You would complete the assessment in the comfort of your own home or office. The online assessment contains 480 questions. Why so many questions? We want to thoroughly assess the 5 most important areas of your relationship so that we can know exactly where to put our efforts. Do not be overwhelmed! My couples finish the online assessment within 30-60 minutes-- it goes fast and some of the questions are fun. Once you are both done I will get your personalized results and will be able to share them with you at your next scheduled appointment. Couples find it helpful to see the areas that they need to grow as well as areas that they are strong on.
