Collaborating with couples of diverse backgrounds and providing culturally sensitive practices help to explore the uniqueness of each couple. Sessions focus on building intimacy, conflict resolution, healing trust breaches, and learning communication tools to help negotiate life transitions .
Couples work is often times a combination of individual and couple sessions that will provide a space for engagement in strengthening the relationship and explore the changes necessary for building a better relationship with one another.
As couples find themselves at the head of their families, strengthening their relationship can have an influential impact on the family as a whole. Couples looking to be a force of change within their family may participate in family sessions in conjunction with couple therapy.
Principles and tools of Gottman Couples Therapy guide the therapeutic work. Before getting into the work of change, The Gottman Relationship Check Up is used a foundation for understanding the couples strengths and challenges. This is a comprehensive assessment based on 40 years of research by the Gottman Institute. Further information will be shared when registering for counseling.

Dr. John Gottman revolutionized the study of relationships by using scientific procedures to observe the habits of couples in unprecedented detail. The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work summarizes his research and outlines 7 principles that can help guide couples, in any stage of their relationship, on a path towards increased love and connection.
The 7 Principles program, created by David Penner and the Gottman Institute, will provide participants the opportunity to learn about Dr. Gottman's research and the principles in a structured, and motivating atmosphere.
