Couples Therapy


Relationships require maintenance, and most of us learn those skills by trial-and-error. Some might think of it as trial-by-fire – ouch!

Gottman couples therapy is a practical approach to communicating and getting along for a lifetime. It recognizes that couples have some unsolvable issues. We need a way to appreciate the positives while we struggle to accept our differences.

John Gottman, PhD and Julie Gottman, PhD developed this method and studied its effectiveness over years with hundreds of couples. Their Seattle-based Gottman Institute trains therapists and conducts couples workshops.

Dr. Clemons has received basic and advanced training in Gottman Method Couples assessment and therapy. While Dr. Clemons uses multiple approaches to meet the unique needs of each couple, Gottman Method forms the basis of her marriage counseling.
