We have been providing the Art and Science of Love Workshop, developed by Dr. John Gottman and Dr. Julie Schwartz Gottman since 2008. The workshop is based upon the research and clinical excellence of these two highly accomplished psychologists. We follow the curriculum as developed by the Gottman's and add our own experiences as couples therapists and master trainers and consultants for the Gottman Institute. We have been encouraged by the feedback of past workshop participants to continue to include our spouses in the presentation of the tools/skills that we are part of the Art and Science of Love. We believe that we are in the same boat as all couples struggling to have lasting/loving relationships, so we take the risk to expose ourselves by demonstrating how to use tools/skills in live conversations with our spouses. This is not particularly comfortable, but it seems to be the best way to teach Gottman principles. If you are in a committed relationship and either struggling or just interested in improving your relationship, please consider joining our workshop. Visit
