Researched Based | Gottman Methods

The goals of the Gottman Method include increasing closeness and friendship behaviors, addressing conflict productively, and building a life of shared meaning together.

Your Mental Health

When relationships break down it causes anxiety and depression.

What’s at stake?

Poor relationships lead to divorce…

Children Struggle

Children of divorce have 10-15% more depression and anxiety than children in stable homes.

Future Relationship Issues

Divorce can lead to relational attachment issues in children and emotional problems well into their adulthood.
