This is for couples who are interested in self-guided relationship improvement with the benefit of extra support via personalized assessment information. Couples will complete several measures to determine their strengths and growth areas, both as individuals and as couple, and receive recommendations based on these results. This service also includes a 1-hour introductory session and a 1-hour feedback session with a therapist at our practice.
Please note: this is not considered couples therapy but relationship coaching.
This service includes the following, in addition to the consultation sessions:
The Gottman Relationship Checkup

The Relationship History Interview
This measure gives you a chance to describe what drew you to your partner initially and the good and bad times you’ve experienced since meeting.
Adult Attachment Interview
There is a tremendous amount of research that shows that our early experiences shape our later adult relationship and attachment styles. This measure will help us identify your attachment style and gain a better since of your early family of origin experiences.
The Big 5 Personality Profile
Since individual personality traits significantly impact dynamics in a relationship, each partner will also complete this inventory to highlight areas that may enhance the relationship and areas that may take additional effort to navigate. Click here for a sample report.
