Research Tells Us What Works in Relationships

Getting help sooner than later may make all the difference when couples reach a point of not knowing what to do or how to make things better. We know from research the predictors of relationship stability and happiness as well the predictors for relationship breakdown. Unfortunately partners in distressed relationships on the average wait over six years before seeking help.

The Gottman Method provides blueprints for healing and for strengthening relationships, providing therapists a clear framework for understanding the cause of relationship difficulties and strategies to more effectively help those couples.

Integrating and blending my research on couple recovery with the Gottman Sound Relationship model offers new hope and understanding for couples impacted by addiction. The model has been adapted by treatment programs and clinicians as interest and openness in a relational approach in addiction recovery is emerging. This movement in summarized as "Couple Addiction Recovery Empowerment" CARE.

Strong Relationships = Happiness

As a Certified Gottman Therapist and Presenter I appreciate the value of this model in helping couples through the Art & Science of Love Weekend Workshop. Over the two days there are brief presentations, role plays by the presenters (with much humor), and time to practice the tools to heal and strengthen the relationship. There is no group sharing or disclosure.

As a Master Gottman Trainer and Presenter it has been my joy to train counselors and therapists in the Gottman Model through the three levels of training workshops and as a consultant for those pursuing certification as a Gottman Therapist.

In collaboration with John and Julie Gottman and the Gottman Institute I have designed and developed two workshops, presenting both workshops nationally and internationally. Roadmap for the Journey is a two-day workshop for couples in recovery from addiction. Couples and Addiction Recovery is a one-day training for helping professionals working with couples impacted by addiction or problematic substance use or compulsive behavior.
