A message from Dr. Wolfe

My interest and passion for couples and family therapy began with my graduate school dissertation on couples, studying how relationships develop, and learning what predicts marital satisfaction over time. One of the things I learned was that empathy is a key ingredient in marital satisfaction. In the late 1990s, I first heard John Gottman present his research to clinicians and, after taking Level 1 Gottman Training, I was immediately hooked. I am proud to be one of a handful of Senior-Level Master Gottman Trainers and Consultants worldwide. I love this work. I have a deep passion for helping couples survive their toughest times and restoring hope and their deep connection to each other.

Feedback from my couples

Before CTI, I was not optimistic about my marriage.

Before CTI, I was not optimistic about my marriage. My wife and I often had disagreements and it was frustrating not being able to have conversations on specific topics.

We had experienced couples therapy before through my wife’s EAP employer benefit. The quality of the therapy sessions and the skill of the therapist resulted in the sessions not being helpful.

My wife did considerable, on-line research and found CTI. Certainly the cost was a significant factor. Deciding what location would work best for us was also a consideration. Having had a unproductive experience in prior couples counseling also was of concern. After several discussions, we concluded we could not afford the fees but we couldn’t afford NOT attending the intensive 2-day session.

As a couple, my wife and I during times of argument, stopped listening to each other and used the time when we weren’t arguing to create new strategies to win the argument.

Scott Wolfe helped us to listen to each other and make comments that were not offensive. He taught us to listen to each other by paraphrasing what the other person says and use disarming language when something is said to gain clearer understanding. [We are now] aware of issues/factors that impact behavior stemming from early in life and how such events influence what and how we say and do things. He provided a communication model whereby we are now able to converse on practically any topic and do so without defensiveness occurring.

I would recommend CTI. Marriage is complex and life factors can create stress and miscommunication. Often, it takes a trained person to help bring couples back from life’s complexities and refocus people on treating each other with kindness/respect.

We needed the help and were hesitant to face the unknown and bring up the past which has been long forgotten.

This was intense but rewarding. We have more open communication, transparency, and trust.

Disconnect from everyday life and focus on the intensive.

We struggled with avoidance and communication. I felt very shamed by a previous therapist.

Scott Wolfe provided a lot of concentrated therapy in a short time; practical application of Gottman tools, better understanding on negotiable issues/non-negotiables. It was much better than spreading it out in a one-hour session.

What would you say to couples that are considering working with Couples Therapy Inc.?
