Private Consultation

You've invested in learning the Gottman method for couples therapy. Now you are using the skills you learned with couples who seek your help. Having been on the same path, I suspect you might have questions—am I using this intervention effectively? How do I best approach the assessment process? Don't struggle on your own! Allow me to be your guide—I offer private consultations on the Gottman method.
We can meet in person or online (via a secure, HIPAA-compliant, teleconferencing system). Please send me an email through the contact form for more information or to schedule a session.

Continuing Education

All Level 1 and Level 2 training options include Continuing Education (CE) hours. All are through PESI and require completion of the corresponding online assessment. Level 1 training includes 11 CE hours, and Level 2 includes 19 CE hours. The Level 1 + Level 2 package provides additional on-demand training with a further six CE hours.
