What is a Certified Gottman Therapist?

A Certified Gottman Therapist is an experienced therapist who has been extensively trained and demonstrated knowledge and competency in applying Gottman research-based methodologies.

Why should we choose a Certified Gottman Therapist to help us?

While the Gottman Method provides couples with clear and simple techniques to improve their relationship, for the couples therapist, it usually takes several years to fully integrate and master both the art and science of Gottman Method Couples Therapy. Working with a Certified Gottman Couples Therapist assures you that you are working with someone who provides the highest quality couples therapy based on cutting edge scientific research focused on what makes relationships work.
