in addition to individuals, I have been working with couples throughout the course of my long career using various theories. I became aware of the rigorous research of Dr John Gottman while I was studying for my PhD, and then watched a number of my master’s level Marriage and Family Therapy students take his trainings and give excellent reviews. Since I have been living in France and once again building a private practise, I have had the time to complete the Gottman level 1 and 2 trainings, and then in June 2019 was extremely fortunate to complete level 3 with Drs John and Julie Gottman in person when they offered the course in Tel Aviv, Israel. I became a Certified Gottman Therapist in 2022. With all the methods of therapy for couples I have read about, taught and practised, I find the Gottman method to be the one that really works, and as a clinician I have the confidence that I am now offering the best treatment available.
