Gottman Method Couples Therapy

Dr. Lubell has completed Level I training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy. She incorporates Gottman Method Couples Therapy into her therapeutic work with couples as well as individuals who are struggling with their relationships.

The Gottman Method is based on years of research into what makes relationships work, and what causes them to fail. The therapy focuses on healthy expressions of emotion and replacing destructive patterns of relating (known as "The Four Horseman of the Apocolypse" for couples) with healthy antidotes that foster emotional repair and the building of safety, trust, friendship, and positive feelings. The therapy provides clinically proven methods of conflict resolution as well as repairing the couples friendship and love.

See "The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work" for more information about the Gottman approach for relationships.
