Brad Fabling's profile on the Gottman Referral Network


Philosophy and Therapeutic Approach

I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families, including adolescents and children. Whether you are distressed over an event, have overwhelming emotions rooted in past trauma, or need assistance with a relationship, I will facilitate the exploration, recognition, and resolution of your concerns according to your needs. In a safe environment, we will discuss the difficulty you, you and your partner, or you and your family members are facing, as well as explore behaviors, relationships, feelings, tendencies, and decisions.

My theoretical orientation is a Family Systems approach, which is flexible to your needs. I have an integrative approach, with a foundation in Client-Centered Therapy integrated with cognitive-behavioral interventions. Through the course of counseling, we will choose the right therapeutic approach for you.

For couples therapy, I use the Gottman Couples Method.  During the first session, I explain the advantages of the Gottman Method which is built on 50+ years of clinical research developing effective interventions that have been shown to improve relationships. Additionally, I integrate other couples counseling techniques and interventions to provide a comprehensive approach to relational improvement.

What to Expect During Therapy

I provide a warm, professional environment, which allows you to explore current issues and concerns. Whether you come for individual, couples, or family therapy, I will assist you with learning a variety of research-based tools to incorporate once you leave the office. In partnership, we will identify your inherent strengths to bring about emotional healing and spiritual restoration through the integration of mind, body and spirit.

The Gottman Couples Method includes a comprehensive online assessment that identifies overall relationship happiness and measures five key relationship areas: friendship and intimacy, sex and passion, conflict management, shared meaning and trust, and identifying strengths and areas for growth in a couple’s relationship. The assessment, along with a focused intake session including individual interviews, provides the information to develop a tailored treatment plan to make the most of your time in therapy.

A one-time session fee of $500 covers the assessment, assessment analysis, treatment plan development, and review of the results in session. Seeing your strengths from the assessment is encouraging and reminds you of the positive aspects of your relationship. The challenge areas noted in the assessment keep therapy focused to ensure couples therapy is an efficient use of your time and resources.

Couples sessions are 75 minutes to allow time to completely work through the various Gottman interventions. You are encouraged to talk directly to one another in session. I assist with keeping the conversations focused with the use of selected interventions as indicated by the assessment results. This allows you to have dialogue on challenging topics that you have had difficulty discussing in the past.

Professional Experience

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Colorado and a National Certified Counselor (NCC). I received my undergraduate Civil Engineering degree from the United States Coast Guard Academy. My postgraduate work includes an MBA from Golden Gate University and an MS in Pastoral Counseling from Loyola College in Maryland. 

With 28 years of active duty service in the U.S. Coast Guard, I have a keen understanding of the challenges veterans and their families face. My additional professional training includes EMDR certification, Level 3 Practicum Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy and Gottman Certification Consultation Training, Prepare-Enrich certification, and Sibshop Facilitator training for siblings of children with special needs.

Personal Interests

My wife, Sue, and I have been married for over 38 years. We have raised three grown children and have three grandchildren. We live in Castle Rock, CO with our golden doodle, Lucie, and attend Canyons Community Church. As a Colorado native, I love to enjoy the mountains with Sue. I like skiing, mountain climbing, fishing, camping, and, closer to home, swimming in Castle Rock.

I count it a privilege to assist others to be reconciled to one another and to Christ. My counseling practice is an extension of my ministry as described in 2 Corinthians 5:18-21.

“All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” – 2 Corinthians 5:18-21
