Kathleen is a Certified Gottman Therapist who is dedicated to the health and well-being of couples. She provides support and teaches couples to connect in ways to enhance their friendship and intimacy. Kathleen provides individual couples counseling as well as 1 and 2 day workshops for groups of couples. If a couple is in extreme emotional distress Kathleen does provide marathon counseling which includes (2) three hour sessions.
For couples with complex schedule who may live or work out of town, Kathleen offers privare weekend intensive sessions on all day Friday and Saturday or all day Saturday and Sunday workshops.
Theses workshops have been created and are research based by Drs. John and Julie Gottman in collaboration with The Gottman Institute.
A new online assessment that automatically scores a couple’s strengths and challenges.
This clinical tool consists of 480 questions about friendship, intimacy, how well you know your partner, how you manage emotions and conflict, how you share your values and goals, and what gives meaning to your lives. There are additional questions about parenting, housework, finances, trust, and individual areas of concern. The questionnaire is completely confidential, fully HIPAA compliant, and your therapist will be the only person to see your responses.
The Gottman Relationship Checkup is a breakthrough in couple’s therapy as it allows for a confiden- tial, efficient way for your clinician to complete the evaluation process. By using this new technology, your assessment can be done at any time and in the setting of your choice! Upon completion, it auto- matically provides valuable clinical information by pinpointing specific strengths and challenges in your relationship, while also suggesting actionable, research-based recommendations for therapy.
You can feel confident in your results. Drs. John and Julie Gottman created this research-based as- sessment in collaboration with The Gottman Institute to help couples build a personalized treatment plan with their therapist. Dr. John Gottman is a clinical psychologist who has completed more than 40 years of research on couple relationships, and is recognized as one of the top 10 most influential therapists of the last quarter century. Dr. Julie Gottman is a highly respected clinical psychologist who is sought internationally by the media and clinical organizations as an expert advisor on rela- tionships. Together, they have dedicated their lives to helping couples, and The Gottman Relationship Checkup is the result of this life work.
How it works:
1. Accept your invitation
Your therapist will send each of you a separate email inviting you to The Gottman Relationship Checkup.
2. Create a private profile
Once you have accepted the email invitation to join The Gottman Relationship Checkup, you and your partner will each create individual, separate profiles.
3. Complete the questionnaire
You and your partner will each complete your own questionnaire at your convenience. Stop and start at anytime. Neither partner will be able to access the other’s information at any point in the process. In order to pre-serve the integrity and accuracy of the tool, you are encouraged not to share your re- sponses with each other or log in to your partner’s account. The actual time it takes to complete each assessment varies, but it will take, on average, about two hours.
4. Get your results
When you have both completed your individual questionnaires, your therapist will be notified
and will be able to securely log in to review your scores and the analysis of your relationship. Your therapist will be able to discuss the results with you and suggest a treatment plan for improving and strengthening your relationship.
5. Cost is: $129.00 per couple. (The cost of the assessment is included in the weekend intensive workshop)
6. To schedule your assessment call Kathleen 410-627-0678 or email at [email protected]

Revisiting your past to help uncover your life's passion finding ways to incorporate this into your life plan to achieve your life's future goals
In our therapy practice we see couples, both marriage and those who may be contemplating marriage/divorce, individuals who may be suffering with anxiety, panic attacks, depression, loss, grief and stress management issues and families who are nuclear and blended in their family system. We see relationships as a vital role and intricate part of each of our lives. When one family member is struggling it can throw an entire system out of balance. So as one member gets the needed assistance for themselves and begins the healing process, they can then have a positive affect on all of the relationships around them. Often times when someone enters into a relationship they only have the model of the home in which they grew up in and therefore this family pattern is repeated in the new relationship. This can be a wonderful style of parenting and relating to another person, however, this may be fraught with destructive behaviors that are unhealthy and may cause problems in the relationship. We work with couples and individuals to identify old patterns that are harmful and teach ways to replace old habits with new and healthy ways for partners to relate to each other. This brings balance and energy into the relationship/home for a more loving and caring relationship.
My Therapy Focus
Over the past fifteen years, Kathleen has spent her life fine-tuning ways to assist others in developing an ability to see difficult, painful and even tragic events in their lives from alternate vantage points. It is her mission to instill hope so that one might be able to see a possibility of change and find healing. This process often looks very different for each individual or person in a couple and/or family system.Each session is tailored for each client to meet the needs and challenges of that particular moment in their life while balancing the focus on the larger picture of the client’s overall goals of the therapy process. Some clients find their answers to career shifts, assimilating into a new home or relationships in just a few sessions, while other may seek my assistance for a more in-depth search to answers that they have been wrestling with, over an extended amount of time. Whether one is looking for acceptance, safety, confidentially, or learning more about one’s self, it is our goal to meet you where you are and to walk with you until you find the answers to your quest in the therapeutic relationship.
