Dr. Lubell's approach to helping couples is based on family systems techniques of Bowen and Framo, research and techniques of John Gottman, and her knowledge as an ISTDP certified therapist. She draws on her wide base of understanding to adjust the therapy according to the unique needs of each couple.
Most couples need help both in directly adjusting the way they interact and communicate today, as well as in getting to and resolving the deeper roots of their issues, so the problems do not keep resurfacing in different ways. Dr. Lubell's intensive training in ISTDP helps her get to the bottom of the couple's problem. Dr. Lubell will recommend conjoint therapy, individual therapy, or a combination of both of these in order to best serve your needs.
