About Us

Why Healing Roots Therapy?

We believe therapy should be:


A place where clients can share their most challenging experiences, feelings and thoughts in order to heal.


The ability to make decisions that are best for emotional and mental well-being come from the trust created within a relationship built on transparency.


When we replace judgment with curiosity we provide space for understanding. When we can understand what we are feeling, thinking or experiencing we empower ourselves to make the changes we want in our life.

Questions Couples Ask About The Gottman Method

The Gottman Method is an approach to couples counselling and relationship therapy developed by Dr. John Gottman and Dr. Julie Gottman, renowned psychologists and researchers in relationships and marriage.

The Gottman Method is grounded in the belief that understanding and improving how couples communicate and interact can lead to strong, more satisfying, and enduring relationships.

It consists of:

  • Couples Assessments: Detailed evaluations to understand the relationship dynamics and identify strengths and areas for improvement.
  • One-on-One Couples Sessions: These are the heart of the therapy, where most of the counselling occurs, and couples learn to apply the principles and methods of the Gottman Method.
  • Communication Skill-Building Exercises: Activities and exercises designed to improve communication, build empathy, and resolve conflicts.
  • “Love Maps” and “Four Horsemen” Analyses: Utilizing Gottman’s key concepts to explore the emotional intelligence of the relationship and identify destructive behaviours.
  • Homework Assignments: Couples are given assignments to complete between sessions to apply what they’ve learned and prepare for the next steps in their relational journey.
While individual sessions may be a part of the process, Gottman Therapy is most effective when both partners attend the couples sessions together. This ensures that both parties are equally engaged in improving the relationship.
No, Gottman Therapy benefits all types of committed relationships, whether you are dating, engaged, or married.
Gottman Therapy is effective for various relational issues, including communication problems, financial stress, trust issues, emotional disconnection, and even infidelity.
Coverage for Gottman Therapy varies depending on your insurance provider and plan. It’s advisable to check with your insurer to determine whether this specific therapy is covered.
The duration of therapy can vary depending on the specific issues you are facing and your progress. Some couples may improve significantly in a few sessions, while others may require longer-term therapy.
