Couples/Marriage Counseling

With couples and marriage therapy, the couple is the client. Our aim is to help you work on repairing connections that may have been lost in intimate relationships. A healthy relationship is hindered when there is blaming and a need to make sure that someone is viewed as “right” or “wrong.” However, a healthy relationship grows and flourishes when each individual person is aware of what they contribute to the relationship and how their own perceptions positively or negatively influence the dynamic. With improved communication, mutual understanding, and shared meaning, your relationship can grow to be strong, happy, and healthy.

The Gottman Method

The Gottman Method is an approach to couples and marriage therapy that includes a thorough assessment of the relationship and integrates research-based interventions. We work to help couples strengthen their relationships in three primary areas: friendship, conflict management, and creation of shared meaning. Couples will learn to replace negative conflict patterns with positive interactions and to repair past hurts. We aim to help couples increase closeness and intimacy, improve friendship, deepen emotional connection, and create changes which enhances the couples shared goals. The goals of Gottman Method Couples Therapy are to reduce conflicting verbal communication, increase intimacy, respect, and affection, remove barriers that create a feeling of stagnancy in conflicting situations, and create a heightened sense of empathy and understanding within the context of the relationship. Both counselors at New Perspectives Counseling & Consulting are trained in the Level 1 Gottman Method.

Love Languages

The most common issue we see in any relationship is lack of proper communication. Everyone experiences love differently, and it’s easy to miss the mark when it comes to showing that you care. Therefore, we utilize the Love Languages (based on the research of Dr. Gary Chapman) to help couples identify the root of their conflicts, give and receive love in more meaningful ways, gain a mutual understanding of each other, and grow closer than ever. Everyone gives and receives love differently, but with a little insight into these differences, we can be confidently equipped to communicate love well. This is true for all forms of relationship – for married or dating couples, for children and teenagers, for friends and coworkers, for long-distance relationships, for those brand-new loves and for the oldest romances dating back to the dawn of time.
