  • What methods do you use for couples counseling?
    We primarily use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and the Gottman Method. Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an evidence-based approach to couples counseling that focuses on emotions, emotion regulation, and attachment styles. The Gottman Method approach involves a “Gottman Relationship Check Up,” which is an assessment to identify the couple's strengths and areas of improvement. From there, couples incorporate nine successful relationship pieces that focus on building communication, trust, and intimacy. Both methods have proven highly effective for couples therapy.
  • Can I also see my therapist individually?
    Sometimes either you or your partner will have issues, such as anxiety, depression, trauma, or grief, that you would like to work on individually. If this is the case, we absolutely recommend working with a therapist individually, however it will likely need to be a different counselor than your couples therapist.
