We specialize in Gottman Method Couples Therapy (GMCT), an evidence-based therapeutic approach with over 50 years of research supporting it. GMCT focuses on three primary goals to improve relationships:
1. Enrich the friendship and respect in your relationship
2. Manage conflict with empathy and greater self-awareness
3. Honor the dreams you have, your partner has, and the dreams you share for your relationship

Becoming a Certified Gottman Therapist (CGT) includes extensive training and consultation that can take years to complete. It requires having a license to practice in the mental health field, as well as:

  • 50+ hours of training
  • 100+ hours of conducting GMCT
  • 15+ hours of direct consultation with a Master CGT
  • A video submission review process to demonstrate mastery of  GMCT
