Provides online therapy
Day/evening and weekend marathon intensives
Blue Cross/Blue Shield
I am passionate about helping couples heal from affairs/betrayals, relationship loneliness, perpetual conflicts and a loss of friendship and romance. I also work with pre-marital couples trying to prevent problems, individuals in divorce recovery and singles wanting to improve their relationship skills.
Counseling is currently online, with the hope of returning to in-person as the pandemic mitigates. I am one of a handful of Gottman therapists that offer a state-of-the-art Love Lab assessment for couples. This process mimics Gottman's original research and helps to better pinpoint issues in couple functioning. I also offer one–four day “marathon” therapy for couples desiring a more intensive approach, couples who have difficulty scheduling weekly appointments or for those who do not have a Gottman Therapist in their area (my office is in close proximity to Bush Intercontinental Airport). Please note that I can only work with clients in the state of Texas. My style is warm, sometimes humorous, often direct and always collaborative. My labradoodle, Fred, is a sweet, non-shedding co-therapist who sometimes joins me in sessions.
As a Master Trainer for The Gottman Institute I teach all levels of clinician training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy and am a consultant for clinicians seeking certification status. I have published articles on the Gottman Relationship Blog and Arianna Huffington’s Thrive Global. I am on the Speaker's Bureau for The Gottman Institute and available to do speaking engagements or provide interviews on a wide variety of relationship topics.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Gottman Therapist and Master Trainer and Consultant for The Gottman Institute. I am co-owner of Couples Counseling and Professional Training Associates in Kingwood TX (northeast Houston).
