Falling in love is easy. Keeping your relationship healthy and vibrant is the real challenge. People enter marriages with roughly a fifty percent chance of succeeding. Many couples decide not to divorce and just live parallel lives, sometimes for the sake of the children, or perhaps due to financial considerations. Some couples may feel lost dealing with a major conflict. Others try their best to stay together but can't seem to make each other happy the way they used to. And others may simply be seeking a way to strengthen their relationship now - to avoid being part of divorce statistics down the road. Whatever the case, I'm here to help you stay on or find the path back to love, happiness, and security.
As a trained leader in The Seven Principles (a Gottman Institute program based on Dr. Gottman's renowned book, The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work), my relationship coaching is rooted in research-driven techniques for lasting love. Couples will better understand which expectations, attitudes, and behaviors are adding to or diminishing the quality of their relationship.
This program is appropriate for couples contemplating engagement, for premarital couples, for couples living together, and for couples who have been together or married for decades.
