Additional Info about my Background and Experience helping Couples
After graduating with my Master's Degree, I continued my education and got certified in Level 1 & Level 2 Gottman Couples Therapy as well as Prepare/Enrich Premarital Therapy. Gottman studied couples for over 30 years, in what he called "Apartment labs." He had couples live their normal lives but had cameras on them and studied their interactions, and used 30 years of his studies to create a world renowned couples therapy method. And the methods used in Gottman Therapy that was created, have been proven to bring about results with couples. I got these certifications because wanted to be able to learn all about what made successful relationships, and what the factors were that played into relationships that did and didn't work, so I could use the knowledge and skills to best help my couples! At the end of John Gottman's research, he was able to predict with over 91% accuracy whether couples would stay together or break up. I use many methods in my therapy, from Gottman, that are proven to be effective with couples. It has been so rewarding to help so many couples grow and strengthen their relationships using this method! If you want to learn more about it, feel free to ask me.
