Gottman Method Couples Therapy

Join the millions of couples around the world who have benefited from the

Gottman Method for healthy, lasting relationships.


"Based upon Dr. Gottman’s four decades of research with thousands of couples, you will learn practical skills to improve the friendship in your relationship and help you manage conflict in a positive way.

Research shows that to make a relationship last, couples must become better friends, learn to manage conflict, and create ways to support each other’s hopes for the future.


Gottman Method Couples Therapy was developed out of this research to help partners:

  • Increase respect, affection, and closeness
  • Break through and resolve conflict when they feel stuck
  • Generate greater understanding between partners
  • Keep conflict discussions calm


Through research-based interventions and exercises, it is a structured, goal-oriented, scientifically-based therapy. Intervention strategies are based upon empirical data from Dr. Gottman’s study of more than 3,000 couples. This research shows what actually works to help couples achieve a long-term healthy relationship."
