Additional Information on Couples Therapy
All sessions are 1 hour long, except the initial assessment is 2-hours long.
Sessions 1-4 usually happen within 2 weeks/2.5 weeks so I can gain a good picture of your relationship and we can all start to build a rapport and gain insight on the strengths and vulnerabilities in your relationship.
After that, usually couples meet with me every 1-4 weeks, depending on the treatment plan we come up with after the first 4 sessions, so you and your partner have time to do homework and connect with each other outside of session.
Session 1: 2-hour session where we review your relationship. During the assessment, the couples help me understand what drew them together, where the strengths are in the relationship and how we can build on these and finally, where the relationship vulnerabilities are. When reviewing your relationship, we look at your relationship through the lens of The Gottman Method and looking at The Sound House and if we see The Four Horsemen. I always encourage couples to bring a notebook, snacks, coffee, water and a sense of humor. This is one of my favorite sessions with couples andI often hear this is a fun session for couples to engage in.
*In between the first session and I meet indiviudallywith each partner, each person completes an assessment through The Gottman Connect.*
Session 2 & 3: I meet with each partner individually and we review the assessment tool. During this time, I review your answers with you and get feedback from each partner about what your thoughts are about the relationship, your feelings about where you specifically, need to focus in on to make the relationship better as a whole and finally, what area or areas you think would be the best place to start. After this, we do not meet or speak privately moving forward. There is also a no secrets agreement in therapy to ensure I can help support each partner, equally. I will address this during our first session.
Session 4: We come back together as a group and review the assessment tool together and together with the information we have, we create a treatment plan to move forward.
Session 5: Together, we start learning!
After session 5, sessions start to become more spread out to allow for couples to complete activities outside and try some of the interventions that you learn within session.
Every 90 days, couples recomplete the Gottman assessment tool and we continue to track progress through using this tool, couples own feedback and through interactions seen within therapy.
