Assessment tools can be greatly beneficial and can streamline the therapeutic process. In couples therapy, I utilize the SYMBIS Assessment tool (Save Your Marriage Before It Starts), the SYMBIS+ for married couples, as well as the Gottman Relationship Check-up.
Assessments are filled out online - a report is generated and emailed to me.
I provide a copy of the report and we go over it throughout multiple therapy sessions.
The online assessments provide a tangible roadmap; couples feel comforted by the systematic framework the reports provide and the follow up sessions that lead to higher relationship satisfaction!
