This listing is for biographical purposes only. I have retired from clinical practice, professional trainings, and workshops.

I was the Clinical Director of The Gottman Institute from 2005 until I retired from that position in 2017. In that role, I oversaw clinical aspects of the Institute including providing consultation to clinicians, managing quality control of new programs and products, training and supervising consultants, certification video reviewers and roving therapists at The Art & Science of Love Couples Workshop led by Drs. John and Julie Gottman, and responding to questions about the Gottman Method to the media, clinicians, and the public.

I authored the Leader’s and Couples Guides to John Gottman's book, The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work, and co-developed the Gottman Seven Principles Program for Couples. I have conducted numerous workshops on the Gottman Method across the U.S. and internationally.
