Feeling Good with evidence-based psychotherapy in a warm and supportive environment
Gottman Method Couples Therapy
At Feeling Good Psychotherapy LCSW, we pride ourselves on offering state of the art, best practice to help individuals to achieve their goals to live healthy and happy lives. We are excited about expanding our expertise into the area of couple counseling. Relationships can have a huge impact on wellbeing and overall health.
Relationships can be a source of joy and comfort can also be a source of distress and pain. We want closeness but do not know how to ask for it. Too often we end up pushing away the ones we love the most. Contrary to lyrics in the pop songs, love is not always easy and it does not always come naturally. This is particularly true as you go through the adjustments of parenthood, aging, financial stress, addictions or infidelity.
There are skills in building and maintaining loving relationships. These skills have been identified by psychologists Drs John and Julie Gottman in their longitudinal research of newly wed, as well as gay couples. John Gottman was able to predict with over 90% accuracy which couples would remain happily married and who would divorce. This was on the basis of a ten minute conflict discussion.
Maybe you wonder how your relationship would measure up? Or maybe you know it is in trouble but you keep hoping it will improve when the kids get older.
Did you know that the average amount of time a couple waits before seeking help with a relationship problem is 6 years? We know the earlier you seek qualified support for relationship issues, the better the outcome. Gottman Method Couples Therapy offered at Feeling Good Psychotherapy fits beautifully with our commitment to provide evidence based therapy which supports the couple to improve their relationships.
While there are no guarantees of success and some relationships cannot be saved for any number of reasons it is well worth contacting or calling us at (914) 533-4950 to book your free 15 minute consultation to explore whether Gottman Method Couples Counselling is right for you at this time.
