Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Hello. My name is Timothy West and I am a couples specialist and co-founder of the Marriage Clinic of Marin. The Marriage Clinic is dedicated to helping couples with research-based counseling techniques derived from the approaches of renowned marriage researchers John Gottman and Susan Johnson.

With over 20 years of clinical experience, I have worked with hundreds of distressed couples, helping them through the difficulties that all relationships can eventually present. All couples have conflict; the key is learning how to navigate the stressful times by developing and continuing to enhance healthy marital habits. Much of my approach is based on thirty years of study by John Gottman, Ph.D., who wrote the best-selling book, The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work.

The beauty of this counseling is that couples learn practical skills which allow them to build and maintain an atmosphere of friendship and positivity and to work with, rather than against, the strong emotions which can surface in any relationship. I am particularly skilled in helping men feel comfortable along with their partner in counseling.

My office is centrally located in Main County – easily accessible from San Francisco and the East Bay. I offer extended hours for clients who are traveling longer distances.
