Join the millions of couples worldwide who have seen improvements from research-based interventions for building strong marriages and healing from damaged ones. Whether you want to strengthen or repair your marriage, it isn’t always an easy task. I have 30+ years of clinical experience matched by an intense passion for leading partners into thriving relationship.
One of the best investments you can make in your whole life is in your partnership. Keeping it alive and secure for years to come is both an art and science. In Gottman-Method Pre-Marital Therapy you will receive a feedback session which points out to you where you’re already doing well and where there might be present or future challenges. Together, we’ll develop ways to keep the friendship system strong, to affair proof the relationship, to manage conflict and create shared dreams.
In my professional life as a couples counselor, I have trained extensively with Drs. John and Julie Gottman, world renowned for their four decades of research with thousands of couples, and with Dr. Susan Johnson who developed Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples. Through these and other effective models, you will learn practical, evidence-based skills to strengthen your bonds and manage differences more productively no matter your age, ability, or orientation.

Gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and straight couples all need and deserve tailored, research-based support when they are in distress. Dr. Julie Schwartz Gottman made a key contribution to research on daughters of lesbians: her work showed that daughters with lesbian moms do just as well as those raised by straight moms. Dr. John Gottman conducted the first longitudinal study of its kind of gay and lesbian relationships using multiple methods and measures. Suzanne Pratt worked with HIV+ and AIDS diagnosed gay men at St Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital in New York City and a sizable portion of her private practice is devoted to gay and lesbian couples.
