During this free 15-min phone consultation, we speak with you to find out the issue and determine if we're the right professionals to help your relationship. We then suggest ways we can help. This is an opportunity to ask about the process, our couples counseling programs, fees, specialty, or any other questions you may have regarding marriage counseling.
2. initial session
We see you for an initial intake session where we get to know you, learn about what’s working and not working in your relationship, and establish some ideas on how to continue to make your relationship work. By the end of this session, your expert therapist will make a recommendation on how to get to your desired goals. You will then have the option to choose one of our couples counseling programs and will be assigned a couples assessment.
The Gottman Relationship Checkup is assigned to you and your partner after the first session. Your therapist will email you with a link to an online fully secure and confidential assessment questionnaire where you will answer questions relating to every aspect of your relationship including personal aspects. When both of you finish answering your questionnaires, your therapist will get the results, analyze them and report back to you on your next appointment which will be a feedback session.
4. ongoing sessions
Throughout the following sessions, we collaborate on understanding your relationship and creating a meaningful and lasting change. We work towards getting you where you want to be in your relationship / marriage by giving you tools for healthy communication, healing pain and resentment, getting to underlying issues and working on them so you can enjoy your relationship again.
A progress evaluation will be assigned to you towards the middle/end of the couples counseling program. You will discuss your progress and goal-reaching with your therapist. We will also discuss continued care in this session. It is highly important for us to evaluate your progress and our work with you to ensure the finest quality of service.
6. end of process
The process ends when you have reached the point where your relationship / marriage is in a comfortable stable place. When you are ready to enjoy your partner and your relationship again is where counseling isn’t needed anymore.
Maintenance plan: we leave you with a detailed plan on how to independently maintain the success you achieved with us.
When we both began going to therapy sessions, Idit was unbiased in her questioning and helped us analyze our feelings, situation, and goals. She made us both feel that what we were feeling was important. She gave us several practical tools & guides.
Our therapist gave us several practical tools & guides that: A) helped us understand each other’s feelings, needs & desires better; B) helped build our communication & listening skills; C) helped us set measurable goals. My marriage has improved by far!
We came with little hope that this will help save our marriage… Shockingly, after the first hour and a half with Idit, we were able to start changing as a couple. We started gaining back the lost respect we had for each-other which was the beginning of a turnaround for us after 7 years of marriage.
