It’s time to get back to basics. Committing to couples’ therapy is a scary enough without lives as crazy as ours. I have a solution. Much like any other form of training a structured weekly accountability schedule with your therapy and homework, I believe it will make our work far more productive. Thus, moving forward future couples work will now start here.

Our program model uses resources and tools from a variety of research and practical based programs. Our Program closely follows the John Gottman Seven Principles Program Outline and we use  “Seven Principles of Making a Marriage Work” By John Gottman as our primary text.

THC is designed to establish good relationship habits from the very first week as we require that all clients set up their own 12 month schedule so that there is weekly relationship enrichment built in. By the end of the program, setting the time aside is part of your lifestyle, not just a bandaid.

The four hours a month of counseling may be done in alternating weeks or in a single marathon session (recommended).

Program includes:

  •  50 hours of Therapy with Dr. Patsy Evans or Nicki Line L.M.H.C. and occasional co-therapist or Coach based upon need
  • Technical fees for video analysis
  • Free Membership to the Self Soothe Me Tools Library
