The Gottman Method of Couples Therapy

Why do couples divorce?

 

The reason that most couples divorce is fourfold: Criticism, Defensiveness, Stonewalling and Contempt, or what John Gottman calls, "The Four Horsemen."

 

Criticism, Defensiveness, Stonewalling, and Contempt are highly predictive of early divorce. Our therapists use the scientific research-based Gottman Method of Couples Therapy, through which we teach couples the antidotes to the Four Horsemen. We work collaboratively with our clients to discover new ways to resolve conflict, increase intimacy, and establish new hope within the relationship. We use a multi-faceted approach that includes building on strengths, defining realistic expectations, and improving communication and listening skills.
