I am trained in Levels 1-3 of The Gottman Method and this is the style of couple’s therapy I practice 100% of the time. The reason is quite simple – IT WORKS! I tell all my couple’s it’s like taking a target and making the entire thing a bull’s-eye. This is only made possible by taking an assessment the Gottman’s created out of their 40+ years of experience and training. Additionally, you and your partner will be given access to critical exercises and tools to work on at home (what I call homework), targeted to your unique challenges, at relevant milestones during our time working together. Please read on to learn more.
“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”
The Gottman Method is the first evidence-driven methodology to truly examine how couples interact using multidimensional statistical analysis.
The Sound Relationship House Model
Pioneers in relationship science, Drs. John and Julie Gottman have revolutionized our understanding of marriage, relationships, and couples therapy. They draw upon four decades of breakthrough research with more than 3,000 couples. The Sound Relationship House Theory is the foundation of the Gottman Method, which uses a practical approach to help couples break through barriers to achieve greater understanding, connection, and intimacy in their relationships.
This clinical tool consists of 337 questions about friendship, intimacy, how well you know your partner, how you manage emotions and conflict, how you share your values and goals, and what gives meaning to your lives. There are additional questions about parenting, housework, finances, trust, and individual areas of concern. The questionnaire is completely confidential, fully HIPAA compliant, and your therapist will be the only person to see your responses.
How It Works
The Enhanced Gottman Relationship Checkup is a breakthrough in couple’s therapy as it allows for a confidential, efficient way for your clinician to complete the evaluation process. By using this new technology, your assessment can be done at any time and in the setting of your choice! Upon completion, it automatically provides valuable clinical information by pinpointing specific strengths and challenges in your relationship, while also suggesting actionable, research-based recommendations for therapy. This means I use interventions specific to YOUR marriage, rather than a one-size-fits-all approach that many other marriage therapists may offer.
“Renae, is an amazing therapist. What I found refreshing was her non-judgmental presentation, as well as her insight with various tools to help work through difficult situations. I highly recommend Renae without any hesitation. I was not a believer in counseling until meeting with Renae. I am now a believer.”
