The Gottman Method, offered exclusively for couples at Polaris Behavioral Services, is a highly regarded, evidenced based and innovative approach to couples therapy. Unlike traditional couples counseling, The Gottman Method uses targeted assessment tools and research-based strategies developed by Drs. John and Julie Gottman over the span of 40 years studying couples. This is a highly collaborative, intensive and challenging approach for couples looking for the gold-standard treatment to relationship counseling.
