Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Paula Nelson "I have a 4 session assessment process based on Dr. John Gottman's over 30 years of research on what makes a marriage work. We will meet together so that I can hear from both of you and gather a little history. Then you'll each meet with me individually to fill me in a bit more on your family history and your perspective of the relationship. Meanwhile you'll each complete the Gottman Relationship Check-up. This is a 450 question assessment of your relationship. Once you each complete your own private, individual copy of the questionnaire, it will be sent off to the Gottman Institute for analysis. I will receive the results of your Relationship Check-up and then meet with both of you together to review the strengths and challenges you share and discuss where we should focus in our work together.

I work with couples regardless of marital status, living arrangements or sexual orientation. Marriage/couples counseling can help as long as you are willing to give it a try. "
