Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I trained with Drs. John & Julie Gottman and work with couples, and families from this research-based approach to strengthen closeness and intimacy and help relationships manage conflicts. I lead couple workshops for couples and for therapists and students wanting to learn Gottman Method. My specialization is working with couples recovering from an addiction.

I’m Research Associate and Co-Founder and Clinical Director of Center for Couples in Recovery at Mental Research Institute, a program dedicated to researching and providing individual and group treatment to couples recovering from addiction. This research led to a model of couples assessment and treatment for recovering couples, called the Couple Reciprocal Development Approach (CRDA). This model has been published and presented at professional conference and workshops.
