John & Julie Gottman
I have completed training in Level 1 and Level 2 Gottman Method Couples Therapy taught by Dr. John Gottman and Dr. Julie Gottman.
The Gottman Relationship Institute has two major functions: helping couples directly, and providing state-of-the-art training to mental health professionals and other health care providers. The Gottman Institute applies leading-edge research on marriage & committed relationships in a practical, down-to-earth therapy and trains therapists committed to helping couples. No other approach to couples education and therapy has relied on such intensive, detailed, and long-term scientific study (over 40 years) of why marriages/relationships succeed or fail.
