Struggling with your relationship with your partner? Feeling a lack of connection or always arguing? Ready to take the first steps towards improving your relationship?
Dr. Hannah Gilfix
Are you ready to take your relationship to the next level? I use the Gottman Method, an evidence-based therapy approach, to work with couples who want to learn how to strengthen the friendship in their relationship, manage conflict, and feel more connected with each other.
Rebuild the Friendship and Intimacy of Your Relationship
Do you feel as though you don’t know your partner anymore? Do you feel emotionally disengaged from each other? I will work with you and your partner to change the way you think about each other, increase fondness and admiration, and be able to appreciate each other’s inner world again.
Learn Skills to Manage Conflict
Do you feel like you are always having the same arguments over and over again and that nothing ever changes? Do you feel unheard or misunderstood? I will provide you and your partner with skills to manage perpetual conflict, be able to de-escalate and provide repairs to each other, and be able to have conversations that lead to more satisfying outcomes.
Build Meaning Together
Do you find that you are barely spending any positive time with your partner? Do you feel like you struggle to feel meaningfully connected with your partner? I will work with you and your partner to learn how to prioritize and increase emotional connection with each other.
