Couples Therapy - The Gottman Method
Couples therapy resolves conflict, increases intimacy and helps discover new hope within a relationship.
Relationships are hard work and without the right tools couples often resort to criticism, defensiveness, stonewalling and contempt. At The Counseling Center of Maryland we use Gottman Therapy in couples therapy to collaboratively find new ways to resolve conflict, increase intimacy and discover new hope within a relationship. Research shows that to make a relationship last, couples must become better friends, learn to manage conflict, and create ways to support each other’s hopes for the future. We are here to put you on that road to a loving, long-term relationship.
Gottman Method Couples Therapy emerged from 30 years of research undertaken by Dr. John Gottman following over 3,000 couples through the lifespan. A key focus of this method is attention to the details of how a couple interacts in both conflict and non-conflict situations. Relationships are built over time from many “micro moments” between two people. No one sets out to create a painful relationship. For more information, see www.gottman.com.
