Time to Take an Active Step in Your Marriage.
Evidence-Based Approaches to Marriage Counseling
Using evidence-based therapy, we teach you specific and practical tools to deepen friendship and intimacy in your relationship. To help you productively manage conflicts, you will be given methods to manage “resolvable problems” and dialogue about “gridlocked” (or perpetual) issues. We will also work together to help you appreciate your relationship’s strengths and to gently navigate through its vulnerabilities.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will we be seen together or separately?
Most of the work will involve sessions where you will be seen together as a couple. However, there may be times when individual sessions are recommended. We may also give you exercises to practice between sessions.
How long will we be in couple’s therapy?
Most couples see us for about 12 sessions over the course of treatment. The length of the therapy will be determined by your specific needs and goals. In the course of your couples counseling we will establish points at which to evaluate your satisfaction and progress. Also, we will encourage you to raise any questions or concerns that you have about therapy at any time.
How does couples' therapy end?
In the later stage of therapy, we will “phase out” or meet less frequently in order for you to test out new relationship skills and to prepare for termination of the therapy. Although you may terminate therapy whenever you wish, it is most helpful to have at least one session together to summarize progress, define the work that remains, and say good-bye.
Are there any long-term plans or follow ups?
In the outcome-evaluation phase of couples counseling, as per the Gottman Method, four follow-up sessions are planned: one after six months, one after twelve months, one after eighteen months, and one after two years. These sessions have been shown through research to significantly decrease the chances of relapse into previous, unhelpful patterns. In addition, commitment to providing the best therapy possible requires ongoing evaluation of methods used and client progress. The purpose of these follow-up sessions then will be to fine-tune any of your relationship skills if needed, and to evaluate the effectiveness of the therapy received.
