A Place for

Couples & Marriage Counseling

Most couples go through difficult periods and struggle from time to time. This is true for both healthy and unhealthy relationships. The question for many is knowing when to seek help from a couple’s counselor. On average, couples wait six years form the onset of problems before seeking help. No one knows for sure why.

Whether you are going through a rough patch or a crisis, couples and marriage counseling can help. The sooner you respond to problems, the faster you and your partner will be able to get your relationship back on track. Our approach is based on the latest marital research and methods of Dr. John Gottman and the Gottman Institute. This positive “nuts and bolts” approach to working with couples provides you with the tools and skills that will get results.

All long term relationships go through difficult transitions. Common challenges for couples are parenting a newborn or a teen, a lost job, a move, elder parents, mid-life or empty nest. Unfor-tunately, sometimes couples fall into bad habits during these times that starts them on a negative slide. You will know when that is happening because you will experience an increase in what Gottman has termed:   “The Four Horsemen”

Defensiveness    Criticism

Contempt    and    Stonewalling.

Extended Sessions & Marathon Therapy

Couples in Crisis

Are you unable to talk about difficult issues without fighting or stonewalling? Do you feel that you and your partner have become polarized, extreme and unwilling to compromise? Are you dealing with an affair, threat of divorce, serious illness, substance abuse or domestic violence? In these situations it is very important to take steps to stabilize the situation before major decisions are made.

Extended Sessions or Marathon Therapy may be the approach for you. Extended Sessions are an expansion on our 80 minute sessions designed especially for the couple who is traveling to the Center from outside of the immediate area. Marathon Therapy is an intensive and focused approach to relationship issues that can span two or more days. It helps couples move quickly through specific issues and learn important new skills in a short period of time. Couples out of the immediate area or out-of-state may also wish to enhance their experience by planning vacation time here in California’s Wine Country.

It might have something to do with their fear of being blamed for the problems. Or it could be that they just don’t realize that they have developed patterns of communication that are destructive to their marriage or relationship until they get a wake up call. The wake up call may come in the form of a crisis like an affair, or it may be more subtle, like realizing that you are not feeling or receiving the love, fondness and admiration that you once did.
