Do you guarantee results?

What exactly is the likelihood this will work?

Guaranteeing results in any kind of mental health, emotional, or relational therapy would be a bad idea, not because results don't happen but because results vary. This is even true with medical treatments.  People always respond differently to treatment, whether physical therapy, healing of broken bones, surgeries, medication, or anything else.

The good news is that positive outcomes are pretty common! The treatment approach I use, based on methods taught by Dr. John Gottman, shows couples benefit from the treatment around 70% of the time.* Those are pretty good odds. We cannot, however, guarantee these results because we cannot predict before we have done the therapy which couples will and will not benefit. See more information on this
