Gottman and EFT
I utilize the two empirically validated methods for couples’ therapy:
Gottman Method of Relationship Therapy
The Gottman Method is a couples therapy that uses a comprehensive assessment and interview of each partner and provides feedback to the couple about their relationship. Therapy includes relationship strengthening exercises that focus on friendship, conflict management, and understanding perspectives. Some of the goals of The Gottman Method are improving communication, intimacy, and respect.
Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy
Emotionally focused couples therapy (EFT) focuses on adult relationships where the therapist helps both partners be more honest and aware of their own feelings. Couples attempt to learn more productive ways of sharing emotions, listening, and repairing broken bonds. EFT may also be beneficial for couples who are experiencing an illness or the illness of one of their children.
