Welcome to The Relationship Place

Our therapy practice offers a place to find support, empathy, and outside-of-the-box ways of solving your problems.

Using the Gottman model, our work aims to transform your relationship for the better.

We won’t just talk about your problems. We help you develop evidence-based skills based on John Gottman’s 30 plus years of research.

Gottman is world-renowned for his extensive research and model of couples therapy.

We aim to break the stereotype of what therapy is supposed to be like, and what your relationship should look like.

— Dr. Dana McNeil, PsyD (Certified Gottman Method Therapist) - Founder

We don’t have stuffy offices as you might find in a medical practice.

Our therapy rooms are warm and cozy. You’ll feel like you’re sitting in our living room.

The Gottman Method of Couples Therapy

What is the Gottman Method of Couples Therapy?

Marriage researcher and therapist, Dr. John Gottman has been researching what makes couples relationships work for over 40 years. His research can predict whether couples will stay together with a 94% accuracy.

The Psychotherapy Networker, a key journal for psychotherapists, recognized Gottman as one of the most influential therapists over the past 2 decades.
