My approach to couples therapy
At Kindred Therapy, I only use evidence-based practices, which means the theories I utilize have been researched extensively and have shown to be effective therapy treatments among many of my patients.
I use the Gottman method when working with couples, which is based on 40+ years of research.
I begin with a 75-90 minute joint assessment and then proceed with two 45-60 min individual sessions with each partner. I ask couples to take a comprehensive battery of assessments that shows couples the road map to what we will work on in future sessions.
In the third session, we will all regroup. I will discuss my impressions, and we will discuss them in a free and open environment. The scoring of the assessments will help us develop a treatment plan and the next steps for a future of healing, connection, and love as a couple.
By using evidence-based practices, I can ensure that my clients receive the most effective and proven treatments. Through the Gottman method, I provide couples with the tools and support to build a stronger, more fulfilling relationship for the long term.
