Gottman Method
Couples Therapy

Gottman Method Couples Therapy (GMCT) is based on Drs. John and Julie Gottman’s research that began in the 1970s and continues to this day.  They are the leading experts on couple’s work and from this research developed nine components of healthy relationships known as The Sound Relationship House Theory.  From this theory they have created a method of therapy that emphasizes a nuts-and-bolts approach to improving relationships.


Keith Valerius, MA, LPC is a Level 3 Gottman Method Couple's Therapist who provides Gottman based couples therapy as well as periodic Gottman Method Workshops.  The Gottman Method is an approach to couples therapy that includes a thorough assessment of the couple's relationship and integrates research-based interventions based on the Sound Relationship House and designed to strengthen relationships in three primary areas: friendship, conflict management, and creation of shared meaning.
