I have worked with couples for the last six years in a private counseling practice. In 2014, I became a Certified Gottman Couples Counselor and learned one of the most powerful and effective methods for working with couples. This method is based on 40 years of research by Dr. John Gottman, a renowned expert in what makes relationships work. As couples learn these new skills and apply the tools given to them, they learn ways to strengthen their friendship and manage conflict in a way that makes it feel safe to bring anything up. This then ultimately increases intimacy between a couple.
Sometimes, however, one person is willing to come to therapy, and one is not.
Can change occur when the couple wants to change their relationship but only one person is willing to seek help? I believe it can. If one person can change the way they interact with their partner, it can begin to affect the whole system.
I will coach you on what you can do to change your perspective and to interact with your partner in a way that has the potential to create lasting change. I will teach you:
- How to listen to gain understanding
- How to bring up conflict in a way that your partner can hear what you’re trying to say
- How to build your emotional bank account
- How to turn towards
- How to implement repair – one of the most powerful things you can do
- How to accept influence from your partner
If your marriage started out well, but now you’re noticing a drop in marital satisfaction, give me a call so I can coach you back on the right path.
