Couples

I have completed Level 2 Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy and will be using this treatment model in my work with you and your partner. Below is a hint of what you will be working on in my sessions.

and here is an article “Rescuing Your Relationship From the Four Horseman,” written by a fellow clinician that I believe elaborates on this video just a little bit further.

As an adjunct to therapy, I often recommend the following links to my couples. At the same time, therapy is not always something couples can fit into their schedules. Also, many times one partner won’t go. Here are some alternative ideas to suggest to your significant other:

Couples Workshops:

New! The Chicago Relationship Center This is a two day Gottman workshop called “The Art and Science of Love.” Make it a way to renew, recharge, and refurbish your home life.

Alternate Locations   If you can’t do the Chicago area or would like to visit another location, this link will show you alternate locations for the same workshop above. Dr’s. John and Julie Gottman are the facilitators at the Seattle location.

New! Gottman Couples Retreat Board Game This is something to do together on a date night and looks like a lot of fun!

7 Principles for Making your Marriage Work -For $35.00, you and your partner can gain insight on how to make your relationship work.  This includes the book and two workbooks that you and your partner can take the time to read and practice with many exciting exercises.  A great book!

Art & Science of Love Home DVD Workshop Take the workshop at home, together, if you are unable to fly or drive to one of the nearest locations to Ohio.

Dr. Gary Chapman:

5 Love Languages This is a top pick with my couples and the link will take you to the DVD which is $10 or you can buy the book. I recommend the DVD so you can watch it together and talk about which one is your primary love language. It is fun and then afterwards click here to take the test and find out for sure which one you are. Note: I am told that you can find this through the Columbus Public Library on Digital Format.

Infidelity (Client Picks)

Coping with Infidelity This is an article on the Marriage Builders website.

Surviving the Affair This is a book that addresses both the cheater and the one who was cheated on.

Women’s Infidelity This website is educational and informative and addresses women having an affair. This should be read by both the partner and the woman. There is also a companion book.
