Marathon Couples' Therapy
Drs. John and Julie Gottman are now scheduling appointments for Marathon Therapy at their home office on Orcas Island. Marathon Therapy was developed at the Gottman Institute. In this powerful new therapy format, one couple meets with either Dr. John Gottman, Dr. Julie Gottman, or both doctors together for 5 hours a day and for 2-4 consecutive days while staying overnight at a nearby Hotel or Bed and Breakfast Inn.
Marathon Therapy can thus accommodate clients traveling from other locales who cannot attend weekly therapy sessions. It provides an intensive, condensed and highly focused approach to relationship issues that can help couples move quickly through specific issues and learn important new skills in a short period of time. To learn more or to schedule an appointment for Marathon Therapy, please call (206) 313-0471 for Dr. John Gottman.
