Claire Usher Miner, PhD, LPC, CGCT, Licensed Professional Counselor in Austin
I am a Certified Gottman Couples Therapist, practicing couples therapy using John Gottman's research-based approach ( He has studied more than 3,000 couples and has identified the factors that distinguish happy from unhappy couples in long-term relationships. Using questionnaires, I would first assess your relationship on these factors and then target the therapy on the identified problem areas. If you feel disconnected from your partner or are locked in conflict, I can teach you some new skills to manage your conflict more productively and develop more intimacy and closeness.
I also enjoy working with "new" and engaged couples. I will teach you the factors that are important to make a relationship last and help you develop skills to do that. It's never too early to begin working on your relationship!
Clients describe me as nonjudgmental, patient, compassionate yet challenging. They say they feel listened to and supported in their work with me. Read testimonials on my website at I also bring an understanding of career issues to relationship therapy, because I also specialize in career counseling.
